Nelson Piquet has admitted he would be "delighted" to return to F1 next year with Campos, but admits he is facing competition to become Bruno Senna's 2010 teammate.

A Senna/Piquet combination would remind fans of the country's highly successful F1 era of the 80s and 90s and be "wonderful for the Brazilian public", 24-year-old Piquet Jr is quoted as saying by France's Auto Hebdo at the weekend's Florianoplis kart race.

"Everything now depends on the team. They seem to be looking for a Spanish driver," Piquet, whose father and namesake won three titles in the 1980s, before Bruno Senna's uncle Ayrton became another Brazilian triple world champion.
