MOTORSPORT: Maldonado wants to stay with Williams
10:00am Saturday 21st September 2013 in Sport
PASTOR Maldonado is eager to cement his future with Williams as he firmly believes in the potential of the struggling F1 team.
A single point from the first 12 races of a season represents the worst start to a full campaign in the Grove-based outfit’s history.
Maldonado’s victory in last season’s Spanish Grand Prix now appears like a dim and distant memory.
Yet the Venezuelan is convinced by the changes being made behind the scenes at Williams, and with the advent of game-changing powertrain regulations from next season, he intends to remain loyal.
Linked with the vacancy at Lotus in light of Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari return, Maldonado said: “There are a lot of rumours around.
“I’m already fully involved in next year’s car with Williams, and I would like to stay because the team is looking good.
“There are a lot of changes happening, with new people, new engines, so the team is being restored and that could help a lot to take us to where we need to be.”
