Bruno Senna, the great driving nephew of the late great Ayrton Senna, has won his first pole of the season in Grand Prix 2. Of course GP2 is the minor league racing series to F1. A few of the great current F1 drivers have been taken from GP2 and put into Formula 1. Some of the top names are Lewis Hamilton (2006 GP2 Champion), Heikki Kovalainen and Nico Rosberg, just to name a few.
As many of you know, Ayrton Senna was one of the most talented racing drivers of all time. In his short career he had amassed an amazing 3 World Championships. He basically dominated in Formula 1 as much as possible with the great lineup of drivers at the time. His tragic death came on May 1, 1994. He left behind a great legacy that obviously his nephew Bruno has started to pick up on.
The most glorious thing about this is that Bruno got a pole at Monaco. Not in certain terms some incredible feat, but it just so happens that it is the same track that Uncle Ayrton won six times over.
