“I’m very proud to be joining Mahindra Racing. There is a real ambition within the team to be leaders in Formula E from the start. It’s also an exciting prospect to be part of such a revolutionary championship from the beginning."
Bruno Senna’s first season in Formula E was one of mixed fortune, resulting in only scoring points in four races. He showed his skill by consistently beating team-mate Karun Chandhok and ended the season on a high finishing fourth in London. After staying on for a second season with Mahindra Racing, it was decided his new team-mate would be Nick Heidfeld, the man he replaced at Renault during the 2011 Formula 1 season.
In keeping with the Senna name, Bruno showed talent from an early age when he raced karts against his uncle but was a latecomer to professional motorsport, not making his competitive race debut until 2004 in the Formula BMW UK Championship. Since then he's carved out an impressive career for himself working his way up to Formula 1.
2005 saw Senna compete in British Formula 3, finishing third in the following season and graduating to GP2 in 2007 with Arden International. He finished fourth on his debut and scored his first win in the feature race in Spain at the following event. He signed for iSport International in 2008 and narrowly missed out on the title after securing two wins, six podiums and three pole positions.
In 2008, Bruno had his first taste of Formula 1 with a test for Honda, briefly moving to sportscars until he returned in 2010 to make his debut with the newly-formed Hispania Racing team. In 2012, he moved to Williams before switching to the FIA World Endurance Championship with Aston Martin.
Alongside racing in Formula E in 2016, Senna will race in the World Endurance Record Challenge with Vector Martini Racing.
