Bruno Senna expects to stay at HRT for the rest of the season but admitted he had nothing confirmed for 2011.

Senna was replaced by Sakon Yamamoto at the British Grand Prix, but after returning at Hockenheim insisted he will finish the season with the struggling Spanish team. However, Yamamoto, now in the seat of HRT regular Karun Chandhok, said recently that while he is staying put in 2010, he is not sure whether Senna or Chandhok will be in the sister car.

"I am assuming I will be in the car until the last race," Senna said. "I have a firm place all the way to Abu Dhabi."

But beyond that, he admitted his place for the 2011 season is not yet secure.

"I would like it to be in the bag, but that's not the case," Senna said. "Hopefully I can find a place soon. All I can do is my best, as I have done, and hope it's good enough to continue in Formula One."

He also said he is refusing to look on the negative side of HRT's situation, with a lack of finances meaning the F110 is not being developed.

"It's not really ideal but I'm making the best of it," Senna explained. "That's the only way to be in this situation. If I look at it negatively, I'll lose motivation. I need to be doing my best for whoever will hire me [for 2011]."
