Bruno Senna says his run to sixth place in the Malaysian Grand Prix has helped ease the pressure on both himself and the Williams team, as they target even better results in the future.

Vijay Mallya has brought forward a decision on Force India’s 2012 driver line-up, after revealing he will now finalise the matter before the next race in Abu Dhabi. Mallya had originally intended to wait until the middle of December to decide which of Paul di Resta, Nico Hulkenberg and Adrian Sutil will race for his outfit next year.

Hulkenberg staked his claim for a place in next year’s line-up with a sensational pole position at Interlagos last Sunday, and Williams CEO Adam Parr says the team is now “financially in great shape”
