Breaking news: Bruno Senna has been replaced by Sakon Yamamoto for the British GP. More soon.
Formula1, World Rally and Motorsport Forum
Bruno Senna's future at Hispania is in doubt after the Brazilian was dropped by the Spain-based Formula 1 team for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
"A decision as to who will drive for Hispania for the rest of the season will be taken over the weekend," team boss Colin Kolles told BBC Sport.
Hispania have yet to come anywhere near to scoring a point this season.
Senna, nephew of the late great triple champion Ayrton, signed for Campos in 2009 before it was rebranded Hispania.

Didn`t knew about it, thx for the info Phillphil1993 wrote:In all fairness, he is a good driver. He finished 2nd in the GP2 championship and he did well in Le Mans Series last year. Also, he only started racing in 2004 so he's done well. I saw him in British F3 and thought he looked really good. He's been a tad unlucky this year as HRT have tended to give the first upgrades to Chandhok and the Indian has also had few reliability issues. As far as I recall, the only retirement due to Bruno's fault has been in Spain where he crashed on the opening lap. You can't assess a driver in a bad car after only 9 races. Also, he had a cracked chassis from Spain to Turkey I believe.
