New Williams signing Pastor Maldonado is as talented as either of his two predecessors at the team, Nico Hülkenberg and Nico Rosberg, and deserves his F1 seat on merit, insists the Grove-based outfit's chairman Adam Parr

If that happens (being on the front raw of the grid) chances are he will get himself banned for a couple of races for not being able to slow dawn like happened to him before!
This Williams man (spokesman) sure have tick skin saying all this.

I had a huge laugh reading this. Parr - do you even know what Hulk achieved before he came to F1, I bet he doesn't have a clue since he is paid to speak.

Old proverb:

"It's better to keep your mouth shut and have people think that you're an idiot, than open it and prove you are one"....Adam Parr starting to look VERY SILLY...somebody tell him to keep quiet.

Them guys at Williams have found a new hot foot, complete with a big gold bar worth around 15mil.
A real talent ready to bump wheel with the top five, trounce the Nico boys and smile from the podium a time or two.

I must admit I was wrong about Petrov. He did a very good job in his first season. My call.
Willing to wait until Monaco, Maldonado and Schumy have to show real racy stuff or give up the pot. Time to try some new guy, with or without money..

Kiko: "So, who will be driving for Williams at Monaco?"

I'm not sure I follow these comments. I know he was banned for several races in WSR after injuring a marshal, (was that at Monaco?) but that was several years ago. I thought he had raced at Monaco in GP2 so where does the "banned for life" bit come in?

As an aside, I don't know the details of that incident, only that he was charged with failing to slow down for yellow flags, but I thought a ban for several races was pretty light punishment. Maybe the FIA should have sent out a stronger message, a full year ban at least. However, in F1, we often see drivers barely lifting when the yellow flags are out and setting a bad example. Maybe they should suspend drivers for two races who fail to slow under yellow, whether or not there is an accident. Or maybe under waved yellows, cars must engage their pit-speed limiter.
