Senna chasing 'some good points'

Bruno Senna insists he can get a strong result in Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix after qualifying ninth for Williams.

Senna has not been part of a Q3 shoot-out since last year's Brazilian Grand Prix and has not qualified higher than 13th in 2012.

"It's been a good weekend so far and I'm really happy to be in the top 10 for the first time this season," he said.

"Q2 was extremely close, but we were able to get through. I could have done a better lap in Q3, but I'm pleased with the result and having both cars in Q3 is great for the team.

"The car has felt consistent and our long-run pace is looking good. We're in a strong position for the start of the race, so from here? I'll be pushing to bring home some good points for the team."

His Williams team-mate Pastor Maldonado will start from eighth, but the Venezuelan felt that he could have done a better job had he not encountered so much traffic.

"My qualifying performance was quite good, especially in Q2, but then in Q3 I came across traffic twice. I am happy for the team as we both did a good job to put the team near the front so it's looking positive," Maldonado said.

"It's going to be a tough race here but an important one as getting points is our priority.

"The gaps are very close but we are both in the top 10 and now we need to push for a better position in the race. We have the car and qualifying place for a good finish."
