Sir Frank: It’s a great story for Maldonado and he did great job

Sir Frank Williams delighted with Maldonado’s victory in Spanish GP. And the Williams not rejected that the money from sponsors came with Maldonado, and they are admits now he extended that.

Sir Frank talking shortly before the fire, there was obvious delight at the team’s 114th victory and for Maldonado especially.

“It’s a great story for Pastor who did a great job,” said the 70-year-old. He’s a very happy boy, he deserves to be, and this is good for the engineers back home and those who built a good solid racing car. I’m very pleased.”

Asked about the suggestion Maldonado was brought in because of the money from sponsors that came with him, Williams added: “Yeah, he was to some extent. I’m not denying that.”

But Williams stressed that if there was any doubt Maldonado could have been a trouble driver, “He wouldn’t have got in the team no matter how much money”.

“He did a very sensible job in GP2 and he fully deserves to be in the team, with or without the dosh. Williams said.

“The truth is if you haven’t got the dosh you can’t go Formula One racing.”
