Campos Grand Prix Will Not Pay Senna in 2010

After insisting that he will not be a pay-driver in Formula One next season, Brazilian rookie Bruno Senna yesterday revealed that he will not even be on the pay list of Campos Grand Prix. Apparently, his entire salary will be paid out of personal sponsorship through the duration of 2010, although he is yet to disclose their names.

I will receive no pay, but I'm allowed to have personal sponsors. I am here because I trust Adrian (Campos) completely,” said Senna after inking a one-year deal with the Spanish team.

Senna also told the media the reason why he chose Campos was because it was the only outfit not to ask him for sponsorship money for the organization. As revealed by Senna, almost every team in the F1 paddock except Ferrari demanded around $5 million in sponsorship in exchange of an F1 seat.

I spoke with all the teams except Ferrari, and almost all of them demanded that I contribute five million euros in sponsorships. In the end I reached an agreement with Campos because they believe in me and because they think that my name will help them to get sponsors,” added the Brazilian driver.

Campos Grand Prix is yet to reveal the name of their second driver for the 2010 Formula One Championship, with McLaren's test driver Pedro de la Rosa holding the highest chances of taking that spot.

In the meantime, Campos has become the first and only new-coming team to send their car to the FIA's official crash tests, and the results for the frontal and lateral tests were both positive.
