i have to admit, off all his crash, this one he deserved to win, from pole to victory... no drama no nothing... he can be proud of his only win for lifetime...

A win for Williams after 8 years... with a man that is mostly known for crashing and causing chaos. LOL

Verstappen following in Maldonado's footsteps. He took his first victory in Spain and both of them are known for crashing a lot. Come at me Max fanboys.

And then the Williams garage mysteriously caught fire 🔥 👀 twas a good race though 👍
Adnan Karimjee
Maldonado honestly had sublime speed and some great drives that year. He was also really likeable and friendly off track i feel bad that he has this meme worthy reputation
NiebloGamer
I'm venezuelan and i cried when I saw this race, that is a special feeling, that feeling of happiness when someone who born in your country win a formula one race. Thats maybe a unique moment in life and im so proud of Pastor Maldonado even if his carreer as a pilot was awful. That was one of the best day on my life.

The halo was invented to protect the drivers against Maldonado but then he left

What is our Maldonator actually doing at the moment?

This was the race where Pastor mistook the finishing line as a potential crash. He went at it with maximum attack.
Jraybay
He did well to hold onto that win. Didn't put a wheel off or have a huge lock up, just really well driven. Shame neither he or Senna did much after that, that Williams was decent that year. Pastor was a quick driver too, just made some bizarre decisions on track sometimes...
LamboWalker
Despite what people say Pastor made races so much more exciting to watch. You never knew who he gonna crash into changing dimensions of the championship.

Spanish GP 2012, a.k.a. The event where Bruno Senna could have gotten a podium but gets torpedoed instead
Nebeo
Maldonado wasn't a bad driver on a good day. He just happened to end up in bad cars which meant he had to battle in the field were he made mistakes. If the car was good, he was actually quick.

If Alonso had won this race then he would have been world champion. So many occasions where the championship has been so close yet so far

On Sunday's podium, will we have the winner sitting on the shoulders of the second and third places? Rsrsrsrs

For people here saying Ferrari had a decent car in 2012 they are mistaken. If that car was decent then both drivers would be fighting for the championship and not only Fernando. 2012 might have been Alonso's best year when it comes to driving performance. My favorite race is Valenica 2012. He completely outdrove the car that race and even lapped his teammate who was on the same car.

I dont wanna spoil who is driving for my team next season, but this video should give you a small hint ;)

Maldonado legit is a really strong driver. If he didn't crash into literally everything imaginable, he may have been a title contender

He can proudly say that he beat Alonso in a Grand Prix. Alonso's own GP as well. No matter what happened before and after. He can hold this moment and his head high.
