BUDAPEST, Hungary - Bruno Senna insisted on Saturday that he could get a strong result in Sunday's 2012 Hungarian F1 GP after qualifying ninth for Williams.

Senna has not been part of a Q3 shoot-out since 2011's Brazilian GP and has not qualified higher than 13th in 2012.

'CAR CONSISTENT'

"It's been a good weekend so far," he said. "I'm really happy to be in the top 10 for the first time this season. Q2 was extremely close but we were able to get through. I could have done a better lap but having both cars in Q3 was 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 so I'll be pushing to bring home some good points."

His team mate Pastor Maldonado will start eighth but the Venezuelan felt he could have done better had he not encountered so much traffic.

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

"The gaps are very close but we are both in the top 10. We have the car and qualifying place for a good finish tomorrow."
