has denied his concerns about the future are contributing to a loss of form towards the end of the 2012 season. Although finishing eighth in Abu Dhabi, the Brazilian qualified an awful fifteenth on Saturday and, early in the race, got caught up in a first lap incident. "It was a very tough weekend," he said.
It is reported that Williams
opted against taking up the automatic 2013 'option' in Senna's existing contract. The British team appears likely to pair Pastor Maldonado
with Finnish rookie Valtteri Bottas
next year, leaving Senna's backers in talks with Caterham and Force India
. Asked by Brazil's TV Globo if the uncertainty over his future is affecting him on the track, Senna answered: "You don't think about it. I'm thinking only about what is happening at the race weekend, from a technical point of view." (GMM)
