The Formula One star Bruno Senna did not have a very satisfying race at the Formula E championship in which he is currently participating. After being overlooked by the Williams team, Bruno Senna signed a deal with Mahindra. The latest race in China did not prove to be a very good one for him as he failed to gather any points for his team. Karun Chandok, the Indian driver in his team managed to finish at the fifth position gaining some crucial points. But Senna had some unfortunate troubles with the battery of his car. He had to retire early as he was unable to control his car. The team Principal Dilbagh Gill said that they had a mixed feeling about the race. Although Karun Chandok did his best but Senna was riding some bad luck. He hopes to come back strong in Malaysia with a much improved performance. The Indian fans will be looking forward to his success.
Bruno Senna is the relative of former Formula One star Ayrton Senna who was an incredible talent but lost his life on the race course due to a terrible accident in the early nineties. The latest crash of Jules Bianchi brought back his memories once again. Although Bianchi is in a critical condition but he is considered to be stable. When Bruno was asked about the safety issues in racing he said that some permanent and important measures must be taken to ensure the safety of the drivers otherwise it is going to be a very difficult. In order to avoid the accidents like Ayrton Senna a lot of precautions were taken which has prevented any more deaths on the track. But it is not yet full proof.

Fernando Alonso may not be having the best of seasons in terms of honours and podiums this time around and he is no closer to securing that all elusive third world title that he has been searching for almost a decade now, but he is still the greatest driver the sport has seen since the retirement of the legendary Michael Schumacher and it is only right that he hold the key for the driver merry-go-round next season.
The Spaniard has long been linked with a move away from Ferrari after the fallen Italian giants failed to adapt to the times and come up with a car capable of competing, let alone winning championships and this has frustrated the former two time world champion. His former team McLaren is ready to take him back which will see them release former world champion Jenson Button from the line-up who could then end up going to Williams or Mercedes.

Timo Glock is a German race car driver who is currently employed as a factor driver for the German BMW.
However, the German is most well-known for his almost decade long stint in Formula One, with some of the biggest teams in the sport, such as the Jordan F1 Team, Virgin Racing, Toyota and Marussia F1.
His first taste of Formula One came when he was given the chance to stand in for Giorgio Pantano, who was having a contract dispute with Jordan at that time and riding the car for the first time in the 2004 canadian Grand Prix, Glock became one of only a handful of drivers in the history of the sport to score a Formula One Drivers’ Championship point in his first ever race.
After just three races with Jordan, Glock left the sport hoever, and in 2005, he shifted to the United States of America to race in the Champ Car World Series. Spending the 2006-07 seasons with GP2, Timo Glock returned to Formula One when he signed for Toyota F1, replacing the outgoing Ralf Schumacher.
His stint with the team was his most successful and consistent in Formula One but after Toyota pulled out of the sport in 2009, it appeared that his career was finished. However, the newly formed Manor Grand Prix quickly announced his signing and when the team became Virgin Racing after an investment scheme by Sir Richard Branson, Glock was named as the team’s principal driver.
After Marussia bought the rights of the team overall, Timo Glock raced for one more season with them but left in 2013 with two more years still left to run on his contract. Although no official reason was given for his departure, it is believed the Russian owners’ wish to have a Russian driver forced him to quit.

It has been a rough competition so far. Though F1 is a fantastic tournament but at times at can be cruel as pointed out by him. In this particular part of the game it is the car on which you have to rely upon. It is difficult to beat the Mercedes as they always win every race with their capability. In this season Vettel has not been able to complete three races out of nine. So it has been sheer struggle for Red Bull compared to Mercedes. Vettel was third in the Grand Prix of Canada. The rule changes of F1 have not been according to his terms. It has been testing time for Vettel so far. It has not been a constant run for Vettel as in some he has performed well and in some others he has not.
Despite lot of problems he is enjoying F1. As a young child he remembers the go karting and so it is only for the car that he is driving for and nothing else. He is still confident of improving and the courage to perform under pressure is still there. In the remaining 10 races he is going to do his best. A chance still exists even if it is mathematical. He is optimistic and hopes to grab the opportunity. Even though he is realistic he is not idealistic. The target is to complete the race as soon as possible before others. For them winning each and every championship is important and that is the goal every time indisputably.
