Pastor Maldonado prefers to stay at Williams next year despite hinting earlier that he may have other options open for him in Formula 1.

The 27-year-old is backed by PDVSA, Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, and is supported by the South American’s nation president Hugo Chavez, who was recently elected to continue in his position.

But despite the suggestion that the financial security rested with the Spanish Grand Prix winner, which could allow him to pursue other opportunities, Maldonado is seeking continuity at the British team.

“To be honest I really want to stay with Williams. It's a good team and the team is getting better and better every day,” he said. “We’ve been rebuilding everything in the team and I think now it’s more compact and the car is looking, as I mentioned before, every day better and better.

“So good confidence with them but at the moment there is no confirmation,” Maldonado clarified. “So looking forward to seeing that but otherwise looking forward to remaining in Formula 1 for sure.”
