Senna: Qualifying key

Bruno Senna believes strong qualifying performances for the rest of the season will be the cornerstone of good results, which in turn will help him to secure his future with Williams.

The Brazilian has been outqualified by his team-mate Pastor Maldonado in nine of the first 11 races, but he took a major stride forward in Hungary when he reached Q3 for the first time en route to a ninth place on the grid.

He duly went on to beat Maldonado in the race as he finished seventh, and now he is looking to keep the momentum, which he feels will be key to getting a new deal with Williams.

"The only reason why we scored good points like this is because we qualified well, and we need to keep on doing it," he is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"Everybody needs opportunities to grow up and this is mine. I need an opportunity to grow up and develop with the team. It's probably the hardest season in Formula 1 for who knows how many years. With a tenth of a second you can be five or six positions up.

"In the races I think I'm doing pretty well this season. As I said before, nailing qualifying will be the key to make sure I stay for next year and hopefully the next few years."

Ciao Jules, F1 remembers the affable Frenchman
