Williams Denies Maldonado Is “Pay Driver”

Williams CEO Adam Parr has rubbished rumours that Pastor Maldonado is simply racing for the Williams team as a “pay driver”.

Maldonado has joined the British based team alongside Rubens Barrichello, ousting popular German rookie Nico Hulkenberg.  Speculation in the press had been that Maldonado could raise more sponsorship capital for the team and Hulkenberg, something Williams desperately needs as many of their main sponsorship deals come to an end in 2011.

“The guy just won the GP2 with a rookie team with more victories than anyone. The mere fact that we have to talk about it is absurd. It’s a shame, really,” Parr told motor21.com

Parr also had good words to say about former man Hulkenberg;

“I would like to see him at Williams again,” Parr explained.

“He has the dedication and the passion to be a great driver and I was so impressed with his maturity and professionalism.

“I hope he finds a position somewhere else but on the other hand I would like to maintain a relationship with him,” he added.

    I like the Williams team but reading between the lines here: “The mere fact that we have to talk about it is absurd. It’s a shame, really,”
    Whats absurd Parr, is the fact that you let him go when reading the rest of your statements…they contradict and reveal your true direction.

    “He has the dedication and the passion to be a great driver and I was so impressed with his maturity and professionalism.”
    But not impressed enough to keep him on as even a test driver.

    “I hope he finds a position somewhere else but on the other hand I would like to maintain a relationship with him,” he added.

    Especially if he can bring a LOT of money…

    Now you have to bring another rookie up to speed. It’ll be cheaper to keep Hulk due to the fact that he’ll probably toss less cars off track…
