Pastor Maldonado believes there is more speed to be had from the Lotus after going fourth quickest in second free practice for the Austrian Grand Prix.

Fresh from his first points of the 2015 F1 season in Canada, Maldonado has started the Austrian weekend off successfully by proving just three-tenths shy of the top spot, despite a run off track during the closing stages of the second session.

Even with the lofty end-of-day position, Maldonado still thinks there is more to come from the E23 going forward into qualifying and the race.
