Williams is delighted to announce that the team and race driver Pastor Maldonado are in Venezuela this week to meet its dedicated fans and partners.

Williams enjoys tremendous support in Venezuela, not least because of Pastor Maldonado whose win at the Spanish Grand Prix this season has seen him become a national icon in his home country. Maldonado will be joined by team principal Frank Williams for a series of exciting events in the country’s capital, Caracus, including Maldonado driving his Formula 1 car around the capital city’s most renowned national monument, Los Proceres.

Speaking about the trip Pastor commented, "I’m a proud Venezuelan and I can’t wait to return home on the back of my win earlier this season at the Spanish Grand Prix. I’ve always received lots of support from my fellow countrymen and this trip is an opportunity to give something back to those in Venezuela who have helped me get to where I am today."

Williams team principal Frank Williams said, "Venezuela is a beautiful country and I’m really looking forward to visiting Caracus with Pastor and the team. We receive fantastic support there and with the various events planned this is our chance to bring the excitement of Formula One closer to the fans and thank those who continue to support us."
