Maldonado: Williams changed the philosophy for a better way

Published

on

The Formula 1 rookie winner Pastor Maldonado says that his team Williams has added a new attitude and its will help for more victories in this season.

In Spanish GP Maldonado set second position in qualifying and he was started from the pole in race day due to the qualifying pole maker Hamilton gets penalty for fuel breach and the Venezuelan set his opportunity and the victory granted Williams its first win since the 2004 season.

“We changed the philosophy a little bit, for a better way,” Maldonado said.

“We have a different point of view to attack the problems, so everything looks like it is running very good in the team. The feeling is good.”

“This is a new race. I love this track, and we will see if the car likes this track. If it does then I will be competitive,” said Maldonado ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix.

“I think it will be very unpredictable through the year. The gaps are very close, so everyone can win races,” he added.

Venezuelan believes Williams current medium-downforce level will suit for Montreal and he added that car is working really well in current position.

“I think high downforce tracks are good for us, so we need to see here – this is the first circuit that we are running medium downforce, and I feel confident for this circuit too.

“The car is working really well, the front and the back of the car, so now, with everything so close, if you don’t put everything together then you are at the back. So you need to be focusing 100 per cent around the whole car.”
