Maldonado: Second win is possible

Maldonado: Second win is possible

Pastor Maldonado is refusing to rule out winning one of the final two races of this season, saying "anything can happen."

The Williams driver clinched his first grand prix victory back in May when he took the chequered flag in Barcelona having started from pole position.

The team and Maldonado then suffered a slump in form but appeared to rebound in Abu Dhabi where both drivers brought their cars home in the points - only their second double points-haul of the campaign.

As a result Maldonado is now looking forward to a strong finish to this season.

"Red Bull is quite strong and even McLaren at the moment, but anything can happen," he told ESPN when asked if another win this season is possible.

"Our objective is to put the car in the top ten and as close to the podium as we can. Our car is very consistent and quick during the races and the further we start up the grid the better it is for us.

"We are working so hard and we show everyone that we are back again to be very strong with two cars in the points - it's very positive."

However, there have also been a few issues with Maldonado losing his KERS during the Abu Dhabi. And it is not the first time it has happened.

"I'm disappointed because we had a problem again - in Singapore we also had a problem [while fighting for a podium] - but it happened as well to McLaren.

"But we have to stay focused and try to understand why we had this problem."
