Bruno Senna says he is motivated by the challenge of his new role with Williams following the launch of the new FW34 in Spain.

Senna will follow in the footsteps of his late uncle Ayrton by competing in Williams colours this season having agreed a deal to replace fellow Brazilian Rubens Barrichello for 2012.

Despite a full season with HRT in 2010 and a half a year with Renault last season, 2012 will mark the first time that Senna has gone into an F1 campaign with a full pre-season of testing under his belt and he said his focus was on making sure the team was as ready as possible for the first race of the year in Australia.

"I'm very excited to be back in action with the Williams F1 Team in Jerez," he said. "This is my ever first pre-season testing programme since I started in Formula One two years ago. I'm really motivated and looking forward to working hard and with everyone in the team.

"I hope we have a successful month testing and developing the car so we arrive in Melbourne as well prepared as possible."
