Silverstone success for Senna Bruno Senna today continued his domination of the British rounds of the Ferrari Challenge at Silverstone when he won the first race from pole position and set himself up perfectly for tomorrow's race by securing pole in second qualifying.
The 23-year-old Brazilian has proved an instant hit in the F430 as he takes part in this one-off event. In the pre-race testing session he topped the timesheets against drivers competing in the whole championship, and has so far been unbeatable over the race weekend.
Bruno was fastest in yesterday's free practice session before going on to set pole position for race one. He achieved a lights to flag victory in the race, and is poised for similar success in tomorrow's second race as he lines up on pole.
Tomorrow's race begins at 10am local time.
Bruno Senna: "The rolling start was a bit different for me and it was a bit crazy because people were so close. I just bunched them up at Copse, created a bit of confusion and then I just pulled away. We had a safety car, the restart was fine and I pulled away quickly. It wasn't really too hard after that. Now I'm going to try to do the same tomorrow. Today the weather was very sunny but tomorrow it is supposed to rain so it might be quite different but all of this is great experience for me."
