BRUSSELS: Renault are backing Bruno Senna to score points after the Brazilian's roller-coaster debut for the Formula One team in Belgium. Senna qualified an impressive seventh at Spa-Francorchamps but then made a mess of the start and was handed a drive-through penalty for causing a first corner collision. He ended up in 13th place at the finish. "There are mixed feelings but he did a solid race with good pace and was consistent," said Renault team principal Eric Boullier. "If he can deliver like he did this weekend in every race I think he will be good enough to bring points home."
