Maldonado a smart driver, says Wolff
1 August 2012 – Pastor Maldonado is an intelligent driver who can make it to the top in Formula 1. That is the opinion of Toto Wolff, the former German racing driver who is now assisting Sir Frank Williams in his role as Team Principal.
“Pastor is a smart guy,” Wolff tells German publication Motorsport Total. “I prefer to work with a guy who has extraordinary talent and an extraordinary base speed but who needs to smoothen that out, rather than the other way round.
“He works well by himself and we then try to create the environment around that. I am convinced that it will work smoothly and that Pastor will succeed – and soon.”
Before entering Formula 1, Maldonado was GP2 Champion in 2010.
