With less than 90 days until the 2011 season kicks off, Bruno Senna has admitted he is not sure he will be in Bahrain.

The great Ayrton Senna's nephew had a difficult debut season in Formula One with the uncompetitive new Spanish team HRT.

It had been reported Senna had a chance of moving on for 2011 to the more promising Team Lotus outfit, but Brazil's Globo Esporte said the 27-year-old "came close to signing but the negotiations failed".

Asked in Sao Paulo on Monday about his prospects for 2011, he answered: "There is nothing definite.

"I am still negotiating but it is not easy to find a free seat."

When asked what teams he is negotiating with, Senna added: "Those with free seats."

HRT, Renault, Virgin and Force India all have seats whose occupants have not been officially announced for next season.

Senna admits that HRT was not the ideal place to prove his talents this year.

"The season was difficult and I was unable to demonstrate what I can do," he confirmed.
