PROFILE
Pastor Maldonado

Pastor Maldonado is an uncut diamond, which needs copious amounts of polishing to unleash his capacity as a Formula One driver.

Tagged as a pay driver, with support from Venezuela's state-owned oil company, Maldonado made his point after his gave Williams its first race win in eight years in 2012, beating the likes of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen at the Spanish Grand Prix.

But that achievement slid down as quickly as it had risen, with the Venezuelan becoming the driver who was penalised the most in that season.

Maldonado made his F1 debut when he joined Williams for the 2011 season before his hefty backing allowed him to switch to Lotus.

A champion in GP2, Maldonado has had his share of incidents on his way to the top, and those moments have been hard for him to shed off.

He is yet to calm down as his aggressive driving style often sees him either banging into fellow competitors or the barriers.

His feisty temperament hasn't earned him many fans either as proven when he accused his own team, Williams, of sabotaging his car after qualifying for the United States GP in 2013.

But if there's one reason for Maldonado to continue in F1, then that's hope; hope that he will continue to shine as he did on the 66 laps of the Catalunya circuit during his maiden victory.
