Senna happy with Williams progress

Bruno Senna says he is pleased with the progress being made by Williams
Bruno Senna says he is pleased with the progress made by Williams so far in 2012, with the team having already scored more points than it managed throughout the 2011 F1 campaign.

The Brazilian scored his first points for the team at Sepang after taking the flag in sixth place as Williams maintained a solid start to the campaign, which would have resulted in points in Australia had Pastor Maldonado not crashed out on the final lap.

The improved performance from the team came after a series of changes took place during the second half of 2011 and Senna said the changes had all helped to re-focus Williams' efforts.

“The team has done a great leap forward in terms of performance,” he said. “The changes that happened definitely made the team focus on the right areas and now it's up to us, to me and Pastor, and also the engineers to keep the development rate as high, or higher than the guys we're competing against to try and continue in the position we are.

“It's tough. If it was easy everyone would do it but it's the situation we're in. We're pushing very, very hard and for sure scoring points, especially big points as we did last race keeps everyone motivated.”

The Brazilian was also quick to praise the Williams crew for the part in played in his Malaysian race, with Senna quick to point out that it was a team result

“I think it was a great race,” he said. “We had strong pace and a pretty good strategy as well, even though we had an accident on the first lap, which could in theory have influenced our race result badly. Anyway, we had a strong race. I didn't make any mistakes during the race, apart from the first lap, and that's very encouraging. It shows the car has good performance in the dry and in the wet and we had both conditions in the race. I think it was a pretty good effort, not only from me but from the team as well. I'm not racing on my own.”
