Bruno bows out of F1 for WEC
LE MANS SEAT FOR SENNA: Bruno Senna will leave the world of F1 racing and take on rivals in Le Mans during 2013.
Bruno Senna, after years of struggling to make an impact in Formula 1, is bowing out after being replaced at Williams by Valtteri Bottas.
Senna, a nephew of the late F1 legend Ayrton Senna, has signed up with Aston Martin's world endurance sports car team for 2013.
'ALWAYS HAD VICTORIES'
The David Richards-led team said: "Senna will drive at each round of the WEC in 2013." The WEC is the FIA's world endurance championship, including the Le Mans 24 hours.
Senna commented: "Until 2009 I always had victories and podiums in the categories I passed. Since then, through a series of circumstances beyond my control, I did not have the same chance in F1.
"The proposals offered to me this season also did not give me this possibility."
