Senna prepares for Korea with F1 game, not simulator

Tue, 19 October 2010, 10:01

Oct.19 (GMM) Bruno Senna has denied that F1’s arrival in Korea this weekend is a rare opportunity for struggling teams and drivers to race on a more level playing field.

As a rookie, the Brazilian has been adjusting to unfamiliar layouts in 2010, but the Yeongam facility is new to the entire sport.

And as a new team in 2010, the HRT outfit is competing with rivals with vast pools of data about the established circuits on the F1 calendar.

But Senna is quoted by Globo: “The fact that the track is new for everyone won’t change anything.

“Not just because the level of formula one drivers is so high, but mainly because of the disparity of resources between the teams.

“The drivers of the big teams have prepared for the race in modern simulators, while I stayed home for the weekend practicing with the video game,” he added.

Senna’s former HRT teammate Karun Chandhok revealed this week that the 27-year-old rookie was one of the only drivers to ask him for details of his recent demonstration laps in Korea at the wheel of an older Red Bull car.
