I think they're confident that this isn't a fluke because they've found something in the car (Front brake ducts putting more heat into tyre rims) that is giving him more confidence in the car. It's not just an unexplained surprise change in pace. He can now drive more naturally. Rather than trying to copy Maldonado's style to get the tyres to work.

Looks to me like Bruno is finding his feet at the team, and maturing well. Like Gaz said, best may be yet to come, and based on the last couple of races and interviews that I have seen with him, he seems more humble and determined than last season. His pedigree certainly can't be questioned.
I also get the vague impression that he thinks Maldonado is something of a Neanderthal, if so, he is also perceptive.

Nice to see Bruno get a result - I hope this improves his confidence and ability to run at the capability of the car.

Pastor is a disaster. Fast, careless, loutish, incapable of thinking he could be wrong, and therefore borderline dangerous to himself and the other drivers.

Hope he gets out of the series soon, and safely.

Suddenly, where are the bloggers who relentlessly put down Senna on this column in favor of a one-time wonder Mal-does"nada"? Got their tails between their legs and nothing to say? Bruno is highly competitive without the instability of Maldoes-nada. GO Bruno, keep aiming high and look forward to seeing increasingly better and more frequent top finishes.

as Binza stated I hope Williams give Bruno FP1 up to the season end. They've a lot to lose and nothing to gain with having Bottas taking away this precious track time from Williams F1.
