Lotus Renault GP to run Senna and Heidfeld at Jerez

Lotus Renault GP have announced that both Bruno Senna and Nick Heidfeld will be given a chance to drive the R31 in the upcoming Jerez test.

The change comes as the team looks to replace the injured Robert Kubica who’s future in the sport is still not clear after his horrific rally accident on Sunday.

Vitaly Petrov will drive the R31 on both Thursday and Friday, before handing the car over to their 3rd driver, Bruno Senna, and Nick Heidfeld, with the former BMW Sauber driver many peoples’ favourite to get the nod over Senna if it looks like Kubica will be out for an extended period. The team will confirm the running order for the weekend on Friday evening.

Personally, I would like to see Bruno get a chance to impress in a potential front-running car after struggling to make an impression in the under-performing HRT last year. Lest we forget, he came very close to partnering Jenson Button in 2009 before Honda pulled out of F1 and Ross Brawn opted to retain Rubens Barrichello due to his experience and the lack of testing time.

I can remember as a young child being enthralled whilst watching the likes of Senna, Prost and Mansell on TV. As I grew up so did my interest in the sport. This blog was the natural extention of this and means those 2 English GCSE's aren't going to waste!!
