Point finish at last for Williams

Pastor Maldonado scored his and the Williams team's first point of 2013 with a tenth place finish in the Hungarian Grand Prix

July 28th, 2013 (F1Plus / Chris Cameron-Dow) - It's taken ten races, but Williams finally has a point on the board in 2013. Pastor Maldonado saw to that, finishing tenth in the Hungarian Grand Prix to take home a single point for himself and his team. Valtteri Bottas retired in the other Williams with a hydraulic problem, coasting to a halt on lap 42.

Maldonado was very pleased with the performance of his car. He described his race: "I had a really good start from P15 and made a few overtaking manoeuvres during the race which were on the limit, which is especially pleasing as at this track it is very hard to overtake. The car felt consistent, maybe not as fast in the second and third stints, but very consistent."

Maldonado might have finished 11th, just missing out on a point for what would have been the third time this season, but was gifted a position when Nico Rosberg's engine failed in the closing stages of the race. Nonetheless, Williams are celebrating some tangible progress, as this points finish marks the end of a season-long drought.

Valtteri Bottas felt he had not had his best race, but was nonetheless disappointed with his first retirement of the season: "It’s a shame to have my first retirement of the season as the goal was to finish every race, but there was nothing I could do today.

We still need to investigate what happened but it felt like hydraulics as first I lost the power steering and then the engine. Today wasn’t my best race but in general I feel I am improving all the time and looking forward to the second half of the season."

Williams have four weeks before the next race in Belgium to find some more performance in their 2013 car. Their poor first half to the season has put them well out of contention for the major places in the Constructors' Championship, but Sauber are only 6 points ahead in 8th place in the points table, and Williams will surely be able to challenge for that position in the last nine races of the season.

Maldonado expressed his enthusiasm for the rest of the season: "I really want to keep scoring points now and be even stronger during the second part of the season."
