Feb.5 (GMM) Bruno Senna has denied reports that he has ruled out returning to the F1 feeder category GP2 in 2009

The 25-year-old Brazilian was the series’ runner-up last season, and had been linked strongly with a formula one debut for the Honda or Toro Rosso teams this year

A report in the British specialist press on Wednesday said he will definitely not be staying in GP2 in 2009

“I have only told the iSport team that at the moment I cannot promise them anything, because I want to keep waiting to see if there is a possibility in formula one,” Germany’s quotes the nephew of the great Ayrton Senna as saying

It is clear that Senna rates a Honda takeover as his best chance of a 2009 F1 seat, after talks with Toro Rosso broke down amid the Red Bull-owned team’s demands for a pay-driver

“I wanted a test but I would have got one only if I had paid for the complete season,” he said
