Any misfortune this race was no fault of Senna. He got a good start, but got launched by a Torro Rosso, and spun around. Considering how high he went in the air, he must have had some sort of damage somewhere on the car. It really put him out of contention, and there wasn't much more he could do after that. Was making a decent drive back up the grid, until Massa decided to use his car to help him make the corner. Maldonado's brilliant drive makes Senna look bad, though, but I think that Bruno could've been on for points as well if it wasn't for turn 1.
Exactly, I'm pretty sure it was Daniel Ricciardo that punted him off. Not to take anything away from Daniel's recovery drive, but it has to be taken into account!
Having looked at a video of the start again, it almost looked like as if Senna was too busy trying to avoid Vergne who had just been punted off the track by the slow starting Webber (who was also having to contend with Hulkenberg going down the inside of him and Maldonado trying to steam past the lot of em) before Senna crossed right in front of Ricciardo seconds later.
