Pastor Maldonado ya es un héroe en Venezuela, su país de origen. El piloto ha conseguido un doble objetivo en Barcelona: devolver la victoria a Williams después de ocho años, y convertirse en el primer venezolano de la historia en ganar un GP. Medios de comunicación, autoridades y aficionados a la F1 reconocen su éxito y lo felicitan por lo que ha logrado. Y él aprovecha cada ocasión para agradecerles su apoyo. En una entrevista concedida a la televisión estatal, VTV, Maldonado no lo ha dudado: “Esta ha sido una victoria de toda Venezuela. Creo que todos se deben sentir felices y celebrar este gran triunfo”, asegura, después de dar las gracias por el apoyo recibido. “Tenemos un pueblo y un país que se está emocionando al ver las carreras. Hemos colocado el nombre de Venezuela donde se merece estar, en lo más alto del podio”, añade. Todo el mundo en su entorno, y él mismo, quieren destacar que el triunfo no es fruto de la casualidad, sino que se debe a un intenso trabajo de todo el equipo. Y en este sentido esperan repetir la gesta. “Yo tenía una misión, que era llevar a Williams a la victoria nuevamente. Hay Pastor Maldonado para rato, y Williams para rato”, augura el piloto. Sin embargo, no todo es alegría en Venezuela. Por todos es conocido el apoyo ilimitado del presidente, Hugo Chávez, al piloto de Maracay, que se materializa en el patrocinio económico de la empresa estatal Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA). De ahí que los opositores al régimen chavista no reciban el triunfo con tanta alegría, sino con un cierto tono crítico hacia el “apadrinado” del presidente.

LAT PHOTOGRAPHIC - Pastor Maldonado celebrates his first Formula One victory.. By: http://www.autoweek.com/ Pastor Maldonado pulled off one of the biggest surprises in recent Formula One racing history when he won in Spain on Sunday. The Venezuelan driver might have had a helping hand from a penalty handed out to Lewis Hamilton--one that dropped Hamilton from the pole to the back of the starting grid--but he did the rest himself as he kept his tires in good shape and overcame a strong challenge from Fernando Alonso. The key to his success was an aggressive early pit stop, which--with a little help from traffic holding up Alonso--allowed Maldonado to regain the lead he lost at the start. However, celebrations were muted by a fire in the team garage after the race. “I think it's a wonderful day, not just for me but for all the team,” said Maldonado. “We have been pushing so hard since last year to try to improve race by race, and here we are. Yesterday we were here after a great qualifying and today we did it again. “It was a tough race because the strategy as well, it was tough especially because of the rear tires--after a couple of laps we were struggling with [them]. I need to say I'm pretty happy because the car was so competitive since the first lap. Fernando did a better start than me, but I was just following the pace and it was so great. It's my first podium and my first victory and you can imagine what I feel.” He admitted that it was a battle with Alonso that could have gone either way: “Yeah, it was so close. We were looking to manage the tire degradation so I wasn't pushing that hard, just to keep the tires alive for the end of the race, and Fernando got too close. There were some moments that he was so close, especially at the end of the straight. “But I was managing the gap and controlling everything. I think our pace today was pretty strong and the car looks fantastic. Even the team. We did a small mistake at the last pit stop, but it doesn't affect our performance.” Maldonado was fast at Monaco last year even with a bad car, so he said he's looking forward to the next race. “I think it's going to be a great opportunity for us to be strong again. For sure I will be doing my best on the driving. The team is looking after the car so we need to continue like that. Keep pushing with the car, to develop it as soon as possible and consistency will be the important thing in this championship.” Read more: http://www.autoweek.com/article/20120513/F1/120519910#ixzz1uzdxVyPL
