Pastor eager to continue at Williams

Things may not be going according to plan at Williams this year, but Pastor Maldonado is keen to remain at the Grove squad.

After the highs of 2012 during which he won the Spanish Grand Prix, it is back to reality for Maldonado this year as the team failed to score a single point during the first half of the season.

The Venezuelan, though, believes there is plenty of potential at Williams and wants to stay put.

"I really want to continue here," Maldonado said. "It is one of the best places for a young driver to be.

"For sure we are not happy with the results of this year. We struggled quite a lot to improve the car and be competitive, but everyone knows that - everyone saw what we have this year.

"But I think the team have a great future, with great potential, and there is no point to change."

Maldonado, who is currently in his third season at Williams, believes the team can win more races in the future.

He added: "When I started to drive for Williams I saw the factory, the cars and the history of the team and it was very important for me to become a part of the team.

"We achieved one race victory last year and I think if we have achieved one we can go on to achieve two and three and four. We just need to work hard together, the potential is there."
