Williams drivers Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna are aiming for points in the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Maldonado will start the race from sixth place.

"I’m happy with the qualifying result today. Q1 was a bit close at the end because of the traffic, but the car felt good. It was very consistent and quick which meant we were able to push hard in the top 10", he said.

"We have continued the form from the last few races, so things are looking good for the team in this race".

Bruno Senna was second quickest in Q1 but could manage only twelfth in Q2.

"We were optimistic of getting into Q3 today, but unfortunately as the weather got hotter it wasn’t the best conditions for the car, and we were doing slower lap times than this morning’s practice session", he said.

"We made a few decisions before qualifying based on the fact that we were expecting the track to be a bit cooler, but ultimately that wasn’t the case. P12 isn’t a bad position to start in at Interlagos though, so we’re in a good position to score points tomorrow".
