It has been revealed that Bruno Senna was burned inside his Williams during the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday. The Brazilian retired from tenth position in the closing stages of the race and the precise cause of the problem is still being investigated.
“It was an extremely frustrating weekend,” admits Mark Gillan, Williams’ Chief Operations Engineer. “It was what I would call a character-building weekend, with the high expectations following a front row qualification and fast race pace ultimately dashed due to a double DNF and a risked strategy call.”
Williams will soon confirm the precise problems for both cars, including that which left Senna with burns as he made his way back to the paddock on foot.
“We have a good idea but are still investigating just to make sure that we have covered all potential causes,” Gillan concluded.
With six races to go in 2012, Oxfordshire-based Williams remains eighth in the Constructors’ Championship but has now fallen to 21 points behind Force India.
