Inside F1 - Maldonado on pole
- From the section Formula 1
Williams driver Pastor Maldonado finds out live on Inside F1 that he has been promoted to pole position at the Spanish Grand Prix following Lewis Hamilton's exclusion from qualifying for not having enough fuel to return to the pits.
The Venezuelan is delighted to claim his maiden front-row start, but states he is wary of the challenge from Fernando Alonso's Ferrari alongside him, predicting a tough but "wonderful race" is in store and vowing to fight for victory.
BBC Sport's Lee McKenzie discusses the ramifications of the stewards' decision to exclude Hamilton with technical expert Gary Anderson and former team boss Eddie Jordan.
