Pastor Maldonado says he is keen to try and take Williams back to F1 title glory during his time with the team.

The Venezuelan joined the former championship winning outfit last year for his debut in F1 and secured a surprise maiden victory in Spain earlier this season.

While he has failed to score since after a run of disappointing results, Maldonado insisted he was focused on not only delivering more wins for the team but also on fighting for the title.

"I would, without doubt, stay there a while, a year at least," he was quoted as saying by AS during a press conference in his home country. "Before leaving Williams I would like to win the championship with them. I would give the opportunity for this great team - that gave me the opportunity for me to get on the F1 grid for the first time - to win a world championship."

The former GP2 racer did however admit that there were no guarantees that he would remain with the Grove-based outfit if the option of a move elsewhere arose.

"In F1 you never know what might happen," he said. "There are enough teams on the grid."
