Bruno Senna, born October 15, 1983 in São Paulo, Brazil, is a Brazilian Formula One racing driver and the nephew of the late three-time Formula One world champion Ayrton Senna.

As a child, Senna raced go-karts against Ayrton on the family farm, and Ayrton regarded his nephew’s potential very highly. When leaving McLaren at the end of 1993, Ayrton said: “If you think I’m fast, just wait until you see my nephew Bruno”.

Senna made his Formula One début in 2010, driving for Hispania Racing.

In 2011, Senna replaced Nick Heidfeld as a driver for Lotus Renault GP.
