Senna says his F1 sponsors committed beyond 2012

Bruno Senna (BRA) Williams.Formula One World Championship, Rd18, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Preparations, Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi, UAE, Thursday 1 November 2012.Nov.2 (GMM) Although his future with the Williams team remains uncertain, Bruno Senna has revealed that his sponsors are still prepared to back him beyond this year in Formula One.

In Abu Dhabi for this weekend’s third-last race of 2012, the Brazilian admitted that he is still waiting for Williams to decide its lineup for next season.

“Whenever you’re not confirmed by the end of the championship it gets more difficult,” he told Totalrace, “because the further you get, the fewer options there are.”

Senna insisted that, if Williams wants to keep him, his sponsors are still backing him.

“Each team has different priorities, but my Brazilian sponsors are very pleased with this year’s results in all aspects and understand that this is not a project for just one year,” he said.

He would not be drawn on rumours that Force India could be an alternative for him in 2013.

“That they say that is obvious,” said Senna, “because it’s one of the only teams that has a seat, so it’s easy to say.

“We are focused on staying in Williams,” he insisted.
