'Impossible to be worse in 2012' - Maldonado
30 December 2011 – Pastor Maldonado has explained that it is ‘impossible’ for Williams to deliver a worse overall performance than it did this season, with the squad enduring its worst campaign in the sport to date. With just five points to its name throughout the 19-race year, Maldonado hopes a drastic improvement can be made in 2012.
Maldonado added that his situation could not have been much worse as a rookie, having to cope with sub-standard machinery whilst learning the ropes.
"I believe that was the worst position for a rookie, when nothing worked, especially in the first year, you have to learn many things. Nevertheless, I defended myself well, even against Rubens. It certainly was a year of learning. I adapted very quickly and I felt really good within the team, which is very good."
