Maldonado eyes 2013 F1 title

WILLIAMS IS THE ONE: Pastor Maldonado in action at the Hungaroring in July, 2012.

 
Pastor Maldonado has revealed that he wants to stay with the Williams Formula 1 team for "at least" another year.

As reigning GP2 champion, and with substantial backing from his native Venezuela, the 27-year-old made his debut with the British team in 2011. He then belied his "pay driver" critics by winning in Barcelona, but has also been criticised for making too many mistakes.

A TITLE IS THE GOAL

Maldonado was quoted by the Spanish news agency EFE as saying he would like to stay at Williams in 2013. "I would, without doubt, stay there for a while - a year at least," he said. "I would like to win the championship with them."

He admitted, however, that the first step was a a new deal for 2013. "In F1 you never know what is going to happen."

Asked if he had any alternative plans, he said there were enough teams on the grid to give him a good chance of continuing to race. He added that Williams was a "legendary" team and it was too early to know for sure where he would be in 2013.
