Maldonado seeking return to winning ways

"No, nothing missing. Things change very fast in F1 and Bruno (Senna) is doing quite well, just like me," he said. "What I like on the car Bruno also likes - and vice versa - so we form a good synergy to develop the car."

In the meantime, Maldonado has found controversy after run-ins with competitors on the track and with the race stewards after the race - and even had ill-fortune well away from race weekends, such as crashing his F1 car while giving a demonstration run at a publicity event back home in Venezuela during the summer break.

"Yes, it was a bit embarrassing, but only a bit," he insisted. "It is always tricky to run on tarmac that is not meant for racing.

"It was at the end of the show run when everybody already had a good taste of F1, so it was no big deal," he added, pointing out: "And I had the headlines!"

Getting headlines has never been Maldonado's problem, of course. Getting some championship points, on the other hand, is something he needs to get into a more regular habit of managing - and Spa would be a good place to start.

Agreed pole position. The guy just isnt good enough. If it wasnt for poor qualy efforts from red bull, macca and lotus in Spain then he wouldn't have won there either.
