Mark Gillan, Williams’s chief operations engineer, believes that the FIA should consider changing Formula 1 weighbridge procedures following Pastor Maldonado’s 10-place grid penalty in Brazil. Gillan accepted Maldonado’s reprimand, which was the Venezuelan’s third of the season and automatically triggered the grid penalty. But despite that, Gillan believes that a repeat of such an error could be avoided if teams were notified of weighbridge calls so they could alert their drivers by radio in advance.

Bruno Senna reckons that scoring another point for Williams in Sunday’s Indian Grand Prix is evidence that the pace of the race-winning FW33 is getting back on track after the team’s disappointing showing in Korea . Both he and team-mate Pastor Maldonado reported that they were much happier with the car’s handling and performance during the 60-lap race, and in Senna’s case that resulted in his eighth points finish of the season with tenth place . “We had a strong car in the race and after a disappointing qualifying yesterday, getting a point means that I am happy with today’s performance,” said Senna, who started the race from 13th in the grid.
October 26th, 2012
Pastor Maldonado admitted that Williams currently has little chance of getting back into the top 10 in Indian Grand Prix qualifying. The squad endured its least competitive performance of the season so far in Korea a fortnight ago, when Maldonado and team-mate Bruno Senna qualified 15th and 17th respectively, and finished 14th and 15th. Maldonado was confident that Williams would be in better shape in India , but he was only 17th on Friday afternoon, 2.3 seconds off the pace

The 29-year old Brazilian is under pressure to keep his drive, with speculation mounting that he will be replaced by the team’s reserve driver Valtteri Bottas next year. But Senna reckons he still has a chance if he manages to make himself “indispensable” in the last four races of the season

Williams paid the price this year for having inexperienced drivers on board, reckons Rubens Barrichello. The Grove-based outfit has endured a frustrating campaign since Pastor Maldonado’s sensational victory in the Spanish Grand Prix – which was the last time the Venezuelan scored any points.

Jenson Button finally secured his first pole position for McLaren with a stunning performance in Belgian Grand Prix qualifying. Kamui Kobayashi claimed his maiden front-row start as he underlined Sauber’s speed with a shock second place, while world champion Sebastian Vettel failed to make it out of Q2.

August 30th, 2012
Pastor Maldonado has confirmed that staying at Williams is his first choice for the 2013 Formula 1 season. Despite his run of mishaps in recent races, Maldonado’s stock is relatively high thanks to his accomplished victory in the Spanish Grand Prix, but he claims to have no plans to chase a drive with another team. He is almost certain to be retained if Williams continues its relationship with Venezuelan petroleum giant PDVSA, which is understood to stipulate that the team must run a driver from the South American country even though it is not tied exclusively to Maldonado himself.
