It is being reported that Bruno Senna will make his return to Formula 1 at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix, replacing Nick Heidfeld at Renault. The news has been broken by BBC F1 pundit and former team owner Eddie Jordan, who ran Heidfeld as a driver for the 2004 season.
Having lost his BMW seat in 2009 before returning for a brief spell with Sauber last year, Heidfeld was drafted into Renault after ex team-mate Robert Kubica was seriously injured in his rallying accident of February.
Since notching up a third place finish in Malaysia, the 34-year-old German – currently Renault’s highest-placed driver in the championship – has failed to finish any higher than seventh and holds an average qualifying position of 13th in comparison with team-mate Vitaly Petrov’s 9th.
The return of Brazilian Senna – 27 years old and nephew of late triple World Champion Ayrton – will mark Bruno’s first F1 race since last year’s season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with HRT. So far this season, his only race weekend appearance has been in Friday practice last time out in Hungary.
Renault was unavailable for comment when contacted by GPUpdate.net.
