That is the claim of one of the Brazilian's powerful sponsors, who mid last season helped Senna to take over Nick Heidfeld's race seat at Renault/Lotus.

Just after the 28-year-old joined the team and the sponsor deal with oil company OGX was announced, a spokesman for Senna confirmed the driver's links with the holding company EBX.

At the helm is multi billionaire Eike Batista, who according to Forbes is Brazil's richest man.

Just before the weekend, Senna insisted he is "still battling for a place in F1" this year, having not been "confirmed with any team".

But when contemplating Senna's next move, the O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper quoted Batista as saying: "Simple -- he will race for Williams."
