United States Grand Prix driver ratings

Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - United States Grand Prix - Race Day - Austin, USA

Pastor Maldonado - 8th place, 4 points: 7.5/10

A relatively quiet race for Maldonado in the grand scheme of things, but he was always in the mix for the points and engaged in the scrap for position in the closing laps. The Lotus was not quick in the wet and Maldonado slipped back early on but was able to make progress as the track dried to register his third consecutive point-scoring finish for the first time in his F1 career.
