Pastor Maldonado is committed to get the best out of the current season and has even gone to the extent of shelving his honeymoon to concentrate on Formula 1.

The Williams driver married his girlfriend Gabriella Tarkany, who has been seen with the 27-year-old in the Grand Prix paddock on several occasions, in late December back home in Venezuela.

However, the newly-wed couple didn’t get an opportunity to go on their honeymoon just yet.

"One day. Eventually," smiled Maldonado, when speaking to Reuters.

Maldonado is determined to ensure that he adds to his win tally this season and also stay clear of penalties, which was the highest among the drivers who competed last year.

"I made some mistakes last year but at the same time I was being killed by the stewards. It was a combination, 50-50, not all down to me and everybody knows that," he pointed out.

"I am more experienced now. I will try to be away from the troubles," Maldonado added.
