Pastor: Top 10 a real possibility

Pastor Maldonado believes finishing in the top 10 at Monaco is a real possibility for the Williams team.

After the highs of 2012 during which he won the Spanish Grand Prix, it is back to battling at the back for Maldonado and the Grove squad this season with the team yet to pick up any points.

The Venezuelan, though, is upbeat about his chances of breaking his points duck at Monte Carlo this weekend.

Asked by Autosport about his hopes for the race, he replied: "I hope to be more competitive and to be in the top 10 and it is possible.

"It's one of the most different races during the season.

"I have always been very strong on that track in the past and I hope to be closer to the top 10 there."

Maldonado has repeatedly stated that the FW35 is a difficult car to drive, but he is hopeful he will be more comfortable behind the wheel in Monaco.

"It's difficult to say because I have had a different feeling with the car at different tracks," said of the car with the street circuit in mind.

"I hope to have a controllable car in Monaco.

"Normally, if I feel safe with the car there I can make the difference [at Monaco]."
