Having lost his Williams seat, Bruno Senna says he’s happy with his 2012 season.

Senna has scored points regularly this year, although he hasn’t been as fast over one lap as teammate Pastor Maldonado

“Since the beginning of my program with Williams, I accepted that I had to share the car with Valtteri Bottas in 15 Fridays as a part of his preparation for a likely debut in 2013,” he said on his website.

“It has been extremely satisfying to be the team’s most regular point scorer and for me to demonstrate my pace in all 20 races. I have learned a lot and improved considerably through the season. I have had a relatively short career so far and feel as though I have come a long way in just a few years.

“I would like to thank the whole team and particularly Frank (Williams, owner) for giving me the chance of completing my first full season in F1. It has been extremely rewarding to develop the Williams FW34 into a consistently competitive race car, and cracking the challenge of the Pirelli tires has been just one of the satisfying points.”

Senna said he was happy with his season: “I had some notable achievements this year, such as the fastest lap in the Belgian GP, my favorite track, scoring points on a regular basis and making up many, many places through the races.

“Regularly racing in the top 10 has certainly been a step forward in my still relatively short career, and has allowed me to further sharpen up my race craft. Working with a competitive and supportive engineering team like Williams has left me well-prepared for the next step in my career.”
