Maldonado hopes Hungary is the start

Maldonado hopes Hungary is the start

Ten races into this year's Championship and Williams broke their duck as Pastor Maldonado brought his car home in tenth place in Hungary.

It's been a trying campaign for Williams who in the past would often mix it up for race victories and World titles.

This season, though, they've been struggling just to score points.

And although the team entered Sunday's Hungarian GP as the only established outfit without a point to their name, they changed that when Maldonado crossed the line in 10th place.

"I had a really good start from P15 and made a few overtaking manoeuvres during the race which were on the limit, which is especially pleasing as, at this track, it is very hard to overtake," the Venezuelan said.

"he car felt consistent, maybe not as fast in the second and third stints, but very consistent."

Maldonado is now hoping that having done it once, more top-ten results will follow then F1 returns from its summer break.

"I really want to keep scoring points now, and be even stronger during the second part of the season," he concluded.
