Pastor to continue F1 aggression

2013-01-08 09:20

F1'S CRASH KING WON'T EASE UP: Pastor Maldonado reckons his driving style won't change much considering what he's achieved so far in Formula 1.

William's driver Pastor Maldonado insists he has no intention of easing what he describes as an "extremely aggressive" driving style.

Like Romain Grosjean, Maldonado was heavily criticised in 2012 for being involved in too many on-track incidents.

MOST MISHAPS

One analysis showed he was the driver penalised most often by the FIA in 2012 despite wining the 2012 Spanish grand prix.

Maldonado insisted: "Every time I walk down a hallway in my house and see everything I've got with this style, I think I should continue on this path.

"Yes, I've had run-ins with other drivers, not only now but in the past but I have won in each of the categories in which I have competed.

"That gives me strength to keep going, because you can always improve," he added.
