    #F1 News: Senna hopes strong result silences critics

    Mar.28 (GMM) Bruno Senna has admitted he feels a release of pressure following a strong showing in Malaysia last weekend.

    The Brazilian, whose uncle was the great triple world champion Ayrton Senna, has had a tough time establishing his credentials to date with part-time seats at the HRT and Renault (now Lotus) teams.

    Although out-qualified for the second consecutive grand prix by his Williams teammate Pastor Maldonado in Malaysia, Senna went on to score 8 points in the race -- more than the famous British team's entire tally of last year.

    "Having a good result takes some of the weight off your shoulders," he admitted, according to the Sun newspaper.

    "There will always be critics and you are never going to please everybody. But for sure, having a strong result will take some wind out of the critics' sails.

    "Hopefully I can make sure I keep having strong results to show I deserve my place here," the 28-year-old added.

    Martin Brundle, the former grand prix veteran who is now a highly respected British commentator and analyst, has revealed he is one such sceptic who has been won over.

    "For the first time, I believe Bruno Senna can cut it in formula one," he said.

    "I hadn't seen anything before that convinced me in the same way this (result in Malaysia) did."
