Bruno Senna is hoping a passionate home crowd can spur him on to a fourth consecutive points finish this weekend at Interlagos. The Williams driver’s future is in doubt as far as next season is concerned but is concentrating on having a good race in Sunday’s season finale and believes the spectators can play their part.
“I’m extremely excited to go back home for the final race of the season. Racing at your home Grand Prix always has a different flavour to it and the energy and excitement you get from the crowd is amazing. I’ve only had the chance to race at home in Formula One twice, but on both occasions the crowd gave me an extra boost. Interlagos is a circuit that most drivers like. It’s very technical and difficult to get the most out of it so leads to some exciting racing. We’ve been improving a lot in the last few races and hopefully we can continue that upward trend and get another double points finish here.”
Brazil is also an important race for teammate Pastor Maldonado and he is also looking forward to receiving some local support.
“The Brazilian Grand Prix is very special and there’s no better place to finish the season. The atmosphere is very Latin American and the fans are some of the most passionate and knowledgeable in the world. It’s also close to Venezuela so I always see lots of Venezuelan flags around the track and lots of Venezuelan people around Sao Paulo so it feels a bit like a home Grand Prix. The whole team will want to finish the season with a strong result and head into the winter with some good momentum.”
