Bruno Senna was satisfied with the two points he scored during Sunday’s British Grand Prix, after the Brazilian driver overtook Nico Hulkenberg in the closing stages of the race as the German ran wide on the exit of Stowe. With Maldonado failing to finish within the points, this was Williams’ only points of their home race.
Although Pastor Maldonado started higher on the grid in comparison to his team-mate, the Venezuelan driver was involved in an incident with Sergio Perez which greatly disrupted both he and Perez’s race. The Sauber driver retired, whereas Maldonado only managed to finish 16th in another dismal race for the Spanish Grand Prix winner.
However, Bruno Senna managed to finish just inside the points only a second ahead of the McLaren of Jenson Button. This was the Brazilian’s second consecutive points finish, after he ended the European Grand Prix in 10th position.
“It was a good race for us today, despite starting from further back than we would have liked, and we gained a few positions on the first lap.” Explained Bruno Senna, “We then had a tough race fighting against the Force India’s and the Sauber’s. I’m happy with the result though as things are looking up and if we can qualify a bit higher in the next race, we will be looking to push for more points in the future.”
Bruno Senna’s highest finish so far this season was 6th at the wet/dry Malaysian Grand Prix. The Brazilian driver will undeniably be looking for emulate that sort of competitiveness in two weeks time at the German Grand Prix around the Hockenheimring.
