Maldonado makes Williams winners again


Fernando Alonso took the lead at the start of the Spanish grand prix, but could not hold it as Pastor Maldonado confirmed his practice form by taking the flag for his first-ever Formula One win.

It was also Venezuela’s first ever honours in the sport, and William’s first F1 win in nearly a decade, making it 114 for the third most sucessful stable in F1 history.

Kimi Raikkonen and Roman Grosjean made it a 3-4 for Lotus Renault, but McLaren could only get eighth and ninth, while Red Bull only scored with one car.

Alonso’s second place takes him into the joint lead with Sebastian Vettel in the driver’s championship, Lewis Hamilton is third, and Raikkonen is fourth.

RedBull stay top of the constuctor’s list, McLaren are second, Lotus leap into third.
