Bruno Senna and Toro Rosso

(GMM) The legendary 'Senna' name could return to formula one sooner rather than later.

It is reported that Gerhard Berger, Ayrton Senna's former teammate, may be considering giving a seat to his late friend's nephew, 22-year-old F3 driver Bruno.

Bruno Senna, who was just ten when his uncle died at Imola in 1994, is now a race winner in the British F3 category.

Even more intriguingly, Senna has traveled this year to some key spots on the formula one calendar, including Melbourne and Bahrain. He will probably appear in a Monaco support race.

Moreover, there is now a strong rumored link between the young Senna and Berger, a part-owner – with Red Bull magnate Dietrich Mateschitz – of Toro Rosso.

Berger said: ''Bruno reminds me of Ayrton a lot — both in appearance and his mind.''

Germany's 'Bild' publication suggests that Bruno could be fast-tracked to formula one either later this year or for the 2007 season.

Senna confirmed to the newspaper that he is indeed determined to follow down his uncle's road.

''I want to be world champion,'' Bruno Senna said. ''In my family, we do not do things by half.''
