Pastor Maldonado sees no reason to panic about his run of bad form in Formula 1, even though he has failed to score a single point since his Spanish Grand Prix victory.
The Williams driver has courted controversy in recent races, being involved in incidents at the last four grand prix events and earning a number of penalties and fines. But despite his lack of recent good results, the Venezuelan feels that he and his team have the potential to get themselves back to the form that helped them battle right at the front in Barcelona.
"I am passing through a bad and unlucky moment," Maldonado said. "I haven't got any points after the victory, and it is frustrating, but the championship is long.
"We have lost a lot of points, but we have everything in the right place to get some points from the next race and the second part of the season. We can recover and it is not the end of the season."
Maldonado's recent run of incidents include him getting a penalty for crashing with Sergio Perez in Monaco practice, hitting the wall in qualifying in Canada, clashing with Lewis Hamilton in Valencia and being fined and reprimanded for a collision with Perez again at the British GP.
