Oct.5 (GMM) Once believed secure at Williams with his Barcelona win and Venezuelan dollars, Pastor Maldonado admitted at Suzuka that his plans for 2013 are unclear.
"We shall see, we shall see," he is quoted in Japan by Brazil's Totalrace.
"Of course I hope to be in the best possible position I can be," he said.
And Maldonado, 27, said his plans are unlikely to be known for some time.
"It is too early to talk about Williams," he insisted, "because they always wait until the end of the season."
He said he is not worried.
"It's not just about having won a race," said Maldonado. "I have gone very well, showing speed and particularly with the car that we have, which is not the best but getting better.
"It's been a very good championship. You only see the results but in terms of speed and performance, we're fine," he added.
