Our vice-champion discusses his season
GP2 Series: Bruno, it's probably not the way you wanted to do it, but you've finally taken second in the championship: how does it feel?
Bruno Senna: It feels okay: I think it has been a pretty tough season for us, and I think that we pretty much deserved more than second, but motor racing is full of surprises and variables that you can't control and that's what we had to play with. I think the team particularly deserved more, and I'm just a bit sad for them not to get the team championship but, again, that's how it is and they will be around and I'm sure they will have so much more success in the very near future. So I am very happy about my result and hope that the team can do a lot better.
GP2 Series: It's been a very difficult season for you, I think it's fair to say: how do you deal with that keep chipping away?
Bruno: It was definitely a character-building year for me: I had to deal with so many bad things that happened without giving up, and I never gave up until yesterday when I had to because there was no more chance. But again, today I had another fight on my hands and I fought it to the last inch, took the second place, and that's all I could do. And that's how it is: it's not easy, but it is pretty good.
GP2 Series: What would you say are the best and worst moments of the season for you?
Bruno: It's very hard to say what is the worst moment, because we had many! I think the best moments can be split between the wins and the pole position, because I think getting the pole position after the dog incident meant that we were resilient to all of the difficulties, which was pretty good.
GP2 Series: Of course, Giorgio got there in the end: any thoughts on his season?
Bruno: I guess he was more consistent that us, he had less bad luck than us, and looking back I think most of his bad results are due to track incidents: I didn't have anywhere near as many track incidents as he did, but he proved that experience counts, and he took the pole positions where it counts, and that's how it is.
