Pastor Maldonado is hoping for a return to the points fight in Valencia this weekend, having failed to secure a top ten finish since his win at the Circuit de Catalunya last month. The Williams driver endured a controversial Monaco weekend en route to reitrement, before finishng last weekend's Canadian Grand Prix in 13th place.
"Valencia is a challenge for the drivers because it combines a street circuit that’s used by regular road cars throughout the year with sections of regular race track so it can be tricky to achieve the ideal set up," Maldonado explained ahead of the race.
"The layout is quite quick with some long straights but there are also some slow corners so finding the right balance will be crucial to doing well.
"We’re constantly developing the car and it is showing good long run consistency and hopefully we can improve on the last couple races and pick up some good points."
Maldonado currently sits tenth in the Drivers' championship with a total of 29 points.
