I can't believe Lotus re-signed this guy ... he only "got away with it" this time because he 1) hit a "lowly" Marussia, and 2) Bianchi was able to finish
Imagine the fall-out if he had tangled with one of the front runners....
He's a lot worse than Andrea "de-crasheris" of yesteryear
Money or not.. this guy is lethal..

Valencia 2012.
Spa 2011
Monaco 2011

He and Hamilton collided. Monaco was deemed lulu's fault, the other two he got penalties.

Lotus had about 30 million reasons to re-sign him. Pity they didn't get him to resign.

Oh, how this man infuriates me. Never in the field of Formula 1 has the misfortune of so many been caused by so few. No driver has been penalised more often in one season than Maldonado.

Why he still holds a super licence is beyond me. Take the decision to hire him out of desperate, cash-strapped teams' hands. Actually, I think I'd rather see him retain his super licence and the teams be given a greater share of the profit by FOM. That way he can be shown the door based on his lack of skill alone and he will have no-one to blame but himself.

DBL: Monaco 2005, banned for life from Monaco. Only his rich daddy got him out of that by paying for the medical care for the marshal he hit and severely injured.

I never knew that. Just read up about it. Clearly an idiot.
