Spain - Nearly eighteen years after the death of triple world champion Ayrton Senna in a high-speed crash, the Senna name is returning to Williams Formula 1 team.
Senna's 28-year-old nephew, Bruno, signed a one-year deal to partner driver Pastor Maldonado and give the British team an all-South American lineup going into the March 18 opener in Australia.
While Bruno Senna doesn't carry the success or aura his uncle Ayrton commanded, the Sao Paulo native does provide one of the most valuable names in F1 to a team looking to regain its lustre after one of its worst seasons.
