Bruno Senna: “In the wet we were very strong”

A brilliant performance from Bruno Senna inevitably went largely unheralded in Malaysia, given the attention focussed on Sergio Perez.

However the Brazilian’s drive to sixth – after a first lap crash led to a nose change and fortuitous early switch to full wet tyres – was almost as impressive.

In effect he gave Williams the result that team mate Pastor Maldonado threw away in Australia a week earlier, and the performance went some way to confirming that Senna deserved the seat.

“In the wet we were very strong, we had some pretty good racing with some good people around me,” he said. “It’s very satisfying when you’re competitive.

“I think when the conditions are difficult the drivers who adapt fastest are the ones who make the most ground, and I had to adapt really quickly, and I wanted to prove to these guys that I can do a good job. Hopefully they are satisfied with the job.”

Senna is confident that the team has some upward momentum.

“I think so. We have a good package and I hope we can continue developing everything. I’m really happy for everybody.”

    True, so much for the naysayers, very convincing performance. But then all you need is some struggle with Pirelli tyres next races and people will gun for your head, ask another Brazilian who has never got the entire Pirelli puzzle resolved, so he who looked mighty on Bridgestones is now shooed away like a stray dog…fickle minded fans and agenda wielding experts.

    He’s got the talent, he just lacks the experience, he started racing when he was ‘too old’ compared to other drivers.
