WTF Happened to Pastor Maldonado (feat. TommoF1)

621 754 Näkymät

Pastor Maldonado had quite the reputation throughout his Formula 1 tenure, and still does to this day. From strange crashes, to grand prix victories, the one they call "Crashtor" had a tumultuous Formula 1 career. And then it went. So, what happened to him?
A special thank you to Tommo F1 for joining this venture! Be sure to check out his channel (if you haven't already) -

  • Hey I raced with #13 for years and it wasn't that bad! It was only in my final year where everything started to go wrong, ending with a bike failure on the grid and getting run over by 2 bikes from the back of the grid... Got me a helicopter ride into London but after a time consuming reboot, I wasn't too bad..........

  • I feel like he could’ve been a solid driver with the right coaching and mentoring. He could’ve been what Perez and Hulkenberg are, solid midfield drivers, he had great 1 lap pace, and his race pace wasn’t too bad. He just needed to keep his head a lot more and learn to control himself, he clearly had talent

  • In summary: Pastor Maldonado finished his Formula One career with 28 retirements. This included 9 retirements in 19 races in 2015, yet he still finished a career highest 14th that season in the driver’s championship.

  • The reason why he is speedy is because he takes a lot more risks. Sometimes it pays out but most of the time it doesn't. Let him show he is quick and make as little mistakes as Hamilton.

  • One thing to remember. He'd won championships in formula Renault and technically two in the second formula whatever it was called (the disqualification wasn't his fault) He wasn't a bad driver going into F1. His qauli and race pace was stunningly quick most of the time, Spain showed what he could have been. A high number of those accidents weren't his fault. Sadly 60% of them were total brain fade.

  • Maldonado is shame to my country , he was sponsored by PDVSA ( Venezuelan state oil company ) and Cantv ( Venezuela state mobile company ). He decided to take money from the dictatorships in order to pursue his career. Now he doesn't have a career , works f1 driver in recent history and your country hates you :)

  • Maldonado he the potential for a world champion I believe if he had simply done what Grosjean has done relative to his early days and settled down in terms of crashing! Sure, he crashes more frequently than most, but not to the point where he has more crashes per year than there are race weekends

  • So Tommo F1 When you think Pastor Maldonado you really think about Valancia 2012. Does it really sums up his career really? This kind of incidents almost happen at every race. Last races on spa it happend in F3, F2, and F1 after Kemmel straight. Mazepin actually got a penalty in favor for Tsunoda. If you tend to give the other car no room it sometimes happens they hit you. But i can see you are a Hamilton fan.

  • He was on F1 due to the money he brought from the Venezuelan oil company. He was just propaganda por the Communist party in Venezuela. He had no business being in F1, but F1 loves dirty money

  • As the old saying goes, "If you want to finish first, first you need to finish". No matter how "good" and "speedy" you are, it means absolutely nothing if you cannot stop trashing your car and your rivals. His single F1 win means nothing to me; I have absolutely no sympathy for a reckless driver who actually hurt someone and never bothered to amend for his actions or improve himself afterward. Max "Crashstappen" arguably started out even worse than Maldonado. He was a young prodigy; a selfish and ruthless dirtbag who acted like he owned the roads. The difference is that Max improved over time and Maldonado didn't. Aside from a few hiccups, his drives solidly and he never looks back. Age difference isn't an excuse. Max's abilities to rectify mistakes and to improve with experience are what make him a WDC contender. Maldonado meanwhile can never escape dumpster fires because he has and probably will never change himself for the better.

  • To be fair on the Lewis incident... Lewis pushed him off track, he literally forced Maldonado to use the run-off area. Which yeah, he should've but... No way as a racing driver would I allow someone else, while fighting for a podium to just push me off... AND NOT GET AWAY WITH IT. I actually loved that Maldonado did that to Lewis, he always pushed someone else off-track in those circumstances.

  • I feel like he was on teams that couldn't afford a good coach. He showed natural talent and speed, but unable to control his emtotions when driving (namely anger.) I think if he'd had someone to cool him down and instuct him more he wouldn't have made so many heat of the moment crashes and bad decisions.
