Bruno Senna believes that a few more weekends like the one he experienced at the Hungarian Grand Prix could spell out a near perfect season for the Williams driver and a chance to secure a seat next year.

The Brazilian finished seventh in Hungary, from ninth on the starting grid, pushing his points tally up to 24 and is now just five behind teammate and Spanish Grand Prix winner Pastor Maldonado.

But the 28-year-old acknowledged that grid positions determined on Saturdays would help his cause on Sundays enormously.

“The only reason why we scored good points in Hungary is because we qualified well, and we need to keep on doing it,” Senna said.

“Everybody needs opportunities to grow up and this is mine. I need an opportunity to grow up and develop with the team,” he pointed out. “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,” he said.

Senna had a strong weekend overall at the Hungaroring before the mid-season break, which was crucial during F1’s rest period.

“Definitely if I had come out of the weekend with a bad result or with poor pace, you come into the break with something in the back of your mind,” Senna told Autosport. “I have nothing to worry about now.

“I’m learning, I’m improving and it’s going to be a case of chipping away and in the second half of the season I’ll have much more experience and everything helps,” he explained

“We know the team has potential. We know the direction to push the car for the next few races. There’s a clear development path,” he added. “It’s just great to have a car that’s a top-ten finisher pretty much every race and every time you don’t finish in the top ten is mostly because of something else happened.”
