Nephew of the legendary Formula One driver Ayrton Senna, Bruno also had a brief stint in the sport that still regards his uncle as one of the all-time greats but never managed to make the mark as many people expected due to his illustrious surname.

Bruno’s grandfather, Milton da Silva first gave his young grandson the push he needed to get into motorsport and his love affair with racing started when he was just five years old. Bruno spent the summer holidays racing go karts with his uncle Ayrton who was immensely impressed by the talents of his nephew going on record to claim that if the media thinks he is fast, then they would be blown away by his nephew.
However, Ayrton’s death in a crash during a Grand Prix in Italy as well as his father’s death in a motorcycle clash a couple of years later brought the promising racing career to Bruno Senna to an abrupt halt.
However, despite two deaths in the family, Bruno’s mother reluctantly gave into her son’s love for racing and starting his career as a professional, Bruno has raced in Formula Three, the GP2 Series as well as the short live A1 Grand Prix.
But Bruno Senna will always be remembered as Ayrton’s nephew who never managed to live up to his uncle’s illustrious legacy in a Formula One car.
