Having labelled his car "undriveable", Pastor Maldonado says Williams "only have a week" to fix it after failing to finish in Australia.
Maldonado dropped out in Q1 on Saturday but blamed his FW35, not the dismal weather. According to the Venezuelan driver, the car is "undriveable."
But whether that played a role in him going off the track and beaching the car in Sunday's Australian Grand Prix, he wasn't saying.
Maldonado, though, has urged his team to find a solution and preferably before next weekend's Malaysian race.
"It was a bit difficult during the race, fighting with the car from the beginning," he said.
"We have to learn from this - but we only have a week to do it."
