Senna joins Sky Sports team

Former F1 driver Bruno Sennas has joined Sky Sports' F1 coverage for seven of this year's grands prix.


The Brazilian driver, nephew of the late Ayrton Senna, spent three seasons in Formula One before dropping out after losing his Williams driver at the end of 2012.

And although he's not back on the grid, the 30-year-old will return to the paddock this season as part of the Sky Sports F1 team.

Senna will attend the Malaysia, China, Hungary, Singapore, Russia, USA and Brazil races, sharing 'an insider's view of the paddock as well as an expert eye for technical detail.'

"I've worked with Sky Sports F1 from the other side of the microphone, and always been impressed with their dedication and creativity so I'm delighted to be joining the team," said Senna.

"I'm particularly excited to get my hands on the touchscreen technology and I hope to reveal a few tricks of the trade but also show just how skilled these drivers are.

"The 2014 rules and regulations, driver changes and new circuits we're seeing this year promise for a fascinating season with everything to drive for - I can't wait to start."

Felipe Nasr and Valtteri Bottas head out to begin the fourth and final day
