Senna swaps to Rebellion for LMP2
Former F1 racer Bruno Senna will join Rebellion Racing for the full FIA World Endurance Championship this year after the team’s move into the LMP2 class.
Rebellion has long been a pioneer of privateer LMP1 cars, but for this year has ordered two ORECA-GIBSON 07s instead. Senna will move across from the RGR Sport team to join Nelson Piquet Jr, Nicolas Prost and Mathias Beche on Rebellion’s driver roster. Exact teams have yet to be decided.
Senna, 33, said: “I’m so excited to be part of Rebellion Racing’s line-up for the WEC. The team really has strived to get the most competitive line-up possible to challenge for the championship, as well as winning the Le Mans 24 Hours in LMP2.”
Rebellion’s first car will also run in this month’s Daytona 24 Hours, with the all-star line-up of Nick Heidfeld, Neel Jani, Sebastien Buemi and Stephane Sarrazin driving.
