Senior team-mate Maldonado has retired from both races so far this season – making him the only driver yet to see the chequered flag in 2013 – but remains optimistic ahead of round three.
“We haven't had the best start to the season, and we need some time to improve to be solid in the points, but the whole team is working very hard so let's wait and see how we can adapt the car,” he concluded, “This can be quite an unpredictable race.”
The Venezuelan, of course, triumphed for Williams
in last year's Spanish Grand Prix, fending off Fernando Alonso
and Kimi Raikkonen
after starting from a pole position.
