BBC Sport - Pastor Maldonado on Venezuela, Barrichello and Hamilton

Maldonado 'becomes Venezuela'

Pastor Maldonado tells BBC Sport's Lee McKenzie that he stops being himself and "is Venezuela" when he gets behind the wheel of his Williams to take part in a Formula 1 race.

Maldonado is in his first season in F1, and discusses the help given to him by team-mate Rubens Barrichello and his relationship with McLaren's Lewis Hamilton following a couple of incidents between them this season.
