Senna wins at Monaco!

Settle down now, we haven't spoiled the results of the Monaco Grand Prix. For one thing, the race itself is on Sunday. For another, there hasn't been a Senna driving in F1 since Ayrton died in 1994. We're talking about Bruno Senna, his nephew who has been working his way up the ranks in pursuit of a hard-earned Formula One race seat to follow in the footsteps of his triple-world-champion uncle.

Bruno Senna drives in the second-tier GP2 series, from which the latest crop of F1 drivers have been plucked and in which Senna just scored his first victory of the season. And it wasn't just any track – it was in Monte Carlo, the same track where Ayrton won six times. Bruno practically led from pole, taking the lead from Pastor Maldonado, renowned for his pace at the Monaco track, and leading a flawless race all the way to the checkered flag – ahead of Maldonado and Senna's team mate Karun Chandhok – and setting the fastest lap in the process. Senna's victory puts him in second place for the GP2 title, only two points behind Giorgio Pantano who retired early from the race after an accident.
