Williams’ drivers confirm to re-signed for 2012

The F1 veteran Rubens Barrichello and the Venezuelan driver Pastor Maldonado are anticipated to be re-signed by Williams racing seat for the 2012 season.

And the Williams Team Chairman Adam Parr clearing up that it is ‘vastly the most likely outcome’ at the end of the year. The Grove-based squad has endured its worst ever start to a Grand Prix season, but amid a vast array of structural changes, both Barrichello and Maldonado look set to remain on-board.

“Yes. I think that’s vastly the most likely outcome,” Parr is quoted as saying by Reuters when discussing the probability of both men retaining their respective seats at the outfit next year.

“I always believed, and people derided us or me for saying it, but I think he’s (Maldonado) a very, very talented driver. His record in GP2 certainly earned him a place in Formula 1 and you could see the speed. What I think he’s begun to show is a degree of consistency and maturity that perhaps people didn’t expect as well.”

Williams Technical Director Sam Michael further praised the young Venezuelan, stating that the GP2 title holder ‘should really excel in 2012’ when he is more accustomed to the current Formula 1 calendar.

“Pastor is doing a really solid job. As a rookie, he is particularly strong on the circuits he has driven on before. All the signs are showing that he should really excel in 2012 once he knows all the circuits we visit and so can turn up to each race and just concentrate on driving fast.”
