Having missed out on the Brawn seat this year, Bruno Senna rates his chances of making his formula one debut in 2010.

The 25-year-old nephew of the late triple world champion Ayrton Senna is currently at Le Mans, where he is preparing to take part in the famous 24 hour sports car race for the first time.

But he told Reuters that his only ambition is to step up to motor racing's premier category as soon as possible.

"I have been talking to a few people, there are good chances in formula one I think next year," the Brazilian, this weekend driving for Team Oreca, said.

Senna added: "The market is going to be a bit more open, there are some contracts that are ending, some teams that are interested in joining formula one. It should be a bit more stable than it was this year really."

He said he is in talks with "more than two teams", but admits that it is not currently a good time for drivers to be making plans for F1 in 2010, given the political turmoil.

"I don't think anyone is confident that they are talking to the right people," said Senna, the 2008 GP2 runner-up. "No one knows who is going to be in and who isn't or whether there is going to be a formula one as it currently stands."
