Pastor Maldonado has said he is 'very happy' he will be leaving Williams at the end of this season and he thinks he has delivered more to the team this year than they have for him.
Maldonado will be replaced by Felipe Massa
in 2014, after the Brazilian was confirmed alongside Valtteri Bottas earlier this week.
Williams have struggled this season and while the Venezuelan has nothing signed yet for 2014, he added that he is not disappointed he will be moving on.
“No, I'm very happy to be leaving,” he said ahead of the United States Grand Prix, the penultimate round in the 2013 F1 World Championship. “I wanted to leave the team, and I'm happy about that.
“It's been a tough year - a very hard season for the whole team. Personally I want to drive something different in 2014.
“This is an important moment for me in my career. It is a tough decision but a great one and it was my decision. I decided in Singapore I wanted to leave.
“It's a feeling I had. I'm Latin American and I'm a very hot driver. I've showed that on the track. The conditions in the team were not the best. I'm looking for better. I feel I delivered more to the team than they did for me this year. We had a victory, some good results last year, and even this year we have done well in some races, but this is not everything.
“I'm waiting and expecting something more from F1.”
Maldonado has been linked to a number of teams in recent months, most noticeably Lotus, although Sauber and Force India are also thought to be possibilities.
“At the moment nothing's signed [for 2014]. We are working on things. We're talking with Lotus, and I've another couple of options,” he confirmed. “I hope soon to have a clear decision with everything all sorted, and a clear road for next year.
“The important thing for me is to be in F1. Of the young drivers I'm the only one who has won a race [in Spain last year], so I can deliver a lot.
“Last year I was always competitive, but because of the condition of the car I've had this year everyone has forgotten my talent.
“But I 100 percent believe in myself. I have won all the categories in the past, and I really hope to win in F1 again next year.”
