Maldonado aims for regular points

Pastor Maldonado aims to score points on a regular basis during 2012
Pastor Maldonado insists that his target for the 2012 F1 season is to score regular points after a tough debut campaign in 2011.

The Venezuelan managed just one top ten finish in what was a disastrous year for Williams in 2011 but returns for a second season hoping that a switch to Renault engines and a series of technical changes within the Grove-based outfit will allow him to push forwards.

“To always be in the points and to fight for better results than last year,” he replied to Sky Sports when asked for his views on the year ahead.

Maldonado will be partnered by Bruno Senna for his second season in the sport after Williams elected to replace Rubens Barrichello over the winter, and Maldonado said he was excited about the prospect of teaming up with his former GP2 rival.

"I've known Bruno for many years and it will be very interesting as a team to see the development during the year,” he said. “In F1, we never stop, we always need to improve and improve.

“He's a young guy as well so I think the motivation is quite big, and we need to work together to push hard to develop the car and to be very fit and competitive during the year."
