Senna describes 'feeling of disappointment' in Brazil
27 November 2011 – Bruno Senna was left to lament what might have been in Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix, having been involved in a collision with the Mercedes of Michael Schumacher. The two cars came into contact at Turn 1, leaving the LRGP man with a damaged front wing end plate on Lap 10.
“What can I say?” Senna commented after the race. “It’s been quite a difficult day and the overall feeling is one of disappointment. I started the race in a healthy position on the grid and I was hoping to capitalise on that.
“There were many difficulties preventing us from having a better race, namely the incident with Michael and the gearbox problems. I would love to have given my home fans something to smile about, but unfortunately it was not to be.”
Incidentally, this weekend marked two decades since Ayrton Senna - late uncle of Bruno and triple World Champion - won his first Brazilian Grand Prix.
