the odd accident or two is acceptable, but PM has hit just about everything on track except the saftey car, and i would'nt put that past him. what happened to his comments from a few months ago? when he said i want to stay at williams and take them back to the top, i really want to win a championship with williams.

if pastor and romain are the new breed that gp2 is developing then i fear for the future of F1 they will be racing bumper cars in no time..

Pastor has had plenty of mistakes this season,(crash with LH at Valencia 50-50, jump start at Spa, and taking out Perez I can/t remember where, and many more) But he's also been exremely fast, qualifying in the top 3 few times, and a convincing win, in a car far more inferior than Mercedes, Lotus and even Sauber, he's also had his share of bad luck and mechanical failures. Even if I'm not a fan of his, I entertain the idea that if this guy tames his demons and gets a fast car he can be a regular contender for wins.

There are so many similarities between Maldonado and Ayrton Senna its scary.
Look at their early careers.... early attitudes... and blindingly fast in a car that shouldn't be.... a belief that everyone should be getting out of their way...

if that Williams is hindering Pastor, it might be kind of scary to see him in a faster car. Bruno hasnt done sh*t with the car this year, while Pastor has put it up the order in Q3 and won a race. Lacks the consistency, but he might still be underrated.

If PM leaves Williams, I'm not sure how FW will fill that loss in the budget. I'm not a fan of PM, but he brought a much overdue victory to Williams. I don't think he'll go to Sauber as they have another pay driver I think who will take the seat. I think Ferrari will keep Massa. They don't need the $ and Massa is far more consistent than him. I think Williams is his only option, he might just get bigger cut of the oil money for himself.

Can someone answer a question please. Maldonado brings reportedly 28 million to team but loses a shed load of points in the process but being somewhat erratic
Not sure of the exact figure but i'm led to believe its about 500 million at moment is divided up between based on their final championship positions.
I believe the Williams to be pretty fast so how much money could he have lost them in the process by loosing so many points? it must be around or above the money he brings to the team.
PS figures only what i found F1 Corporate website but i'm sure you can see my thinking on this

Some bright spark once said It's easier to make a fast driver consistent than it is to make a consistent driver fast. (or something like that)
Maldonado has genuine speed, if he grows out of the silly stuff he has a great future.
