It is a dog eat dog world out on the grid where dreams are made and broken in an instant. Formula One is of such a high caliber that once you are out of the race seat you are soon forgotten. Nick Heidfeld is a great driver but found himself without a drive for 2011, that was until Kubica has his unfortunate incident. Taking his place, the German has preformed well but news today spreads of him being dropped in favor of Bruno Senna.
Senna is Lotus-Renault GP’s reserve driver but has now been given the opportunity to prove himself as a racing driver in a very capable car. Nick is understandably annoyed but we must remember that his place in the team was only ever meant to be temporary. There is a whiff of nostalgia as the Senna name finds itself into a black and gold Lotus once again. Can Bruno step out of his late uncles shadow? We shall have to wait and see.
