Bruno Senna asked to test GP2 Series in Jerez Invited by iSport, the team for which he finished runner-up in the 2008 season, Bruno Senna will make a quick – and probably final – appearance in the GP2 Series. The Brazilian driver has been asked to work on the development of the team’s car for next year and will drive on the third and final day of post-season testing session in Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) on Thursday.
Bruno, who won at Monaco and Silverstone for iSport in GP2 last season, explained: "iSport will sign new drivers for 2010 and I will help them by providing a benchmark whilst working on the set up and performance of the car. I got a call from team-owner Paul Jackson and could not resist giving them a helping hand as we built a very good relationship during our days together. For me it is also a good opportunity to drive a single-seater again, as this year I have been mainly driving endurance prototypes in the Le Mans Series. I don't think it will take many laps at all to get back to where I was a year ago with this car. It is a very familiar working environment for me and I am looking forward to trying to push the performance development of the car even further with the team who I had so much success with a year ago.”
The brief comeback to GP2 Series does not mean the category is on the cards for 2010. On the contrary, the expectations regarding a Formula 1 début remain high. "Our latest talks proved even more exciting. Everything keeps going well and the pace of negotiations has increased in the last few weeks. I’m looking forward to having good news in the coming days,” Bruno concluded.
