LONDON – According to different sports news site, Williams, the third most successful team on F1 race after Ferrari and McLaren, has confirmed that GP2 champion Pastor Maldonado will partner Rubens Barrichello during the 2011 Formula One season.

Pastor Maldonado had his first experience in formula racing at Italy in 2003 when he competed in the Italian Formula Renault Championship with Cram Competition

“I will be looking to get some good results in return for the support my country has given me to help get me to this position today,” Maldonado said in a statement Wednesday.

“I feel very privileged Williams have selected me as one of their race drivers,” said Maldonado.

Team boss Frank Williams said, he was first struck by Maldonado’s abilities during his debut at GP2 season three years ago.

Pastor first caught my eye in 2007 when he drove a masterful race (to win) at Monaco. Since then he has regularly reminded us of his unquestionable talent with some skilful wins particularly during this year’s GP2 championship,” said Williams.

Pastor Maldonado replaces Nico Hulkenberg, the rookie who was released by the team after one season.
