No points no problem for Pastor

No points no problem for Pastor

Pastor Maldonado remains confident that he will soon score his first points for Lotus after disappointing for the Enstone team so far.

The Venezuelan has only finished four races so far this year - none higher than 14th - and has been involved in a number of incidents which saw him notch up four penalty points against him.

Despite his struggles at Lotus so far, the 29-year-old remains confident that his fortunes will soon be reversed.

"I am very motivated," he told ESPN.

"I think we have some good weekends ahead of us and there are still so many races to go. The European part of the season is very important for us, so let's push hard, do our best and for sure we will be in the points soon.

"We all know what we have to do and we are all pushing hard. Yes, we can all get frustrated, but ultimately we all want to achieve success so we remain positive. We can see how much improvement there has been with pace from the car and once we have all the reliability issues sorted we'll be regularly fighting for points.

"Once we're there, the next target is to fight for more points and then podiums. We've seen that the Mercedes are not perfect and can be beaten. Even they had reliability issues in Canada."

"I still keep pushing and it's still possible to achieve good things this year. We have had a third of the season which has been a challenge - a big challenge - but we still have two thirds of the year to go with many circuits which should suit our car.

"You arrive at every track with the target of having the best weekend possible and finding as much performance from the car and yourself. This does not change if you've had a difficult last weekend in the car."
