Maldonado disappointed with non-start

Maldonado disappointed with non-start

Pastor Maldonado's Monaco Grand Prix was over even before it began as a fuel pump issue meant he couldn't leave the grid.

Maldonado lined up P15 on Sunday's grid but instead of leaving with the pack for the formation lap he was left sitting.

The Lotus driver was pushed into the pits where the team attempted to get him going.

After a few minutes, though, they were forced to wheel him back into the garage, retiring the car.

He explained: "A fuel pump issue ended the race early. The engine switched off after 30 seconds.

"When we did out laps to the grid the car and the power unit were working well. We need to work to find out what the problem was.

"It is disappointing and I was expecting a solid race, we had a good strategy in place, I love this circuit where I have been competitive in the past.

"We have already worked hard on performance and reliability but today it was not to be. This afternoon we're not happy but we are keeping focused on improving."
