    What team, in their right mind, would hire a guy that talks like that about his team?
    He thinks a bit too highly of himself, me thinks... :-D

    What a douche!
    I hope they suspend him for Brazil. He sounds toxic for the team.

    Not selling himself too well either.

    I suspect given his comments, he'll get 'benched' for Brazil. That is as close to a 'home' GP so it'd really hurt.
    Pastor really needs to get a grip.
    Does he really think in a sport where even a single Constructor's point equates to millions, Williams would be that stupid to sabotage their own car...just to spite him?

    uh...yeah. I think the term "don't let door hit you in the ass on the way out" serves in this situation.

    Why a team has Williams who need money, tampered a car for get a worser place?
    Lately Maldonado thinks is a genius. And no, he isn't.
    Sorry for my english.

    Most young drivers get better as they gain experience, Maldonado is getting worse, ROFL.

    these things happen in F1
    reason unknown ,,could be selling out for financial profits ,a bought mechanic or maybe it even didnt occur

    whatever it is ,,im in favor of freedom of speech ,,not a big fan of the politics and people beeing forced to shut up,like Alonso at Ferrari

    Everyone had troubles getting the tyres to temperature, plus Maldonado got traffic so he couldn't do a clean lap.

    That's why he was slow. No need for tampering, and Williams would not benefit from that at all.

    Maybe Williams need to look at it from both sides of the coin, how would anyone of them feel if it were them in Maldonado's shoe's, replaced by a much more experienced, competitive driver, that would kill off any drivers enthusiasm to go hard and do well in the final races of the season.

    Ok so he should of had a plan "B" in case this occurred, and we all know he's developed a rep as a bit of a reckless pilot at times, but making claims that the team messed with the tyre pressures is a little pathetic, surely Pastor could of come up with a better excuse than that, sour grapes I think, but understandable in the circumstances.

    His sponsors have much more money in their pockets than he has sense in his head.
    Besides, what did you expect from a Hugo Chavez's favourite? That he will be a men of a great intellect?
