Bruno Senna might think that he has taken a giant leap forward this season, from his debut for HRT in 2010, over to Renault for eight races and now Williams. But though his seat was believed to be something he fought really hard for, he is in no way safe at the former champions.
While everyone seems to be revelling in the fact that Sebastian Vettel is looking like he could face a strong opposition, especially from McLaren, not many have noticed that Valtteri Bottas was driving Bruno Senna´s car in the first practice session in Malaysia. And did rather well in the process.
In fact, Bottas did so well, that not only did he just lose out on entering the top ten times, he beat Pastor Maldonado´s time, by 0,059 seconds. And he will take part in a lot more Friday sessions over the season.
The idea is that Bottas will be driving Senna´s car on fourteen more occasions during 2012, and this means Maldonado will keep his car for every session.
