Amid the British team's performance struggle in 2013, it has been rumoured Maldonado could take his PDVSA sponsor millions to Lotus at the end of the season.

But Maldonado's situation regarding his backing by the state-owned oil and gas company is also unclear, in the wake of the political turmoil following the death earlier this year of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.

When asked about Maldonado's status in light of the political situation in Venezuela, Claire Williams answered: "He is a great driver.

"He's doing a great job for the team," Williams' deputy team boss told El Confidencial newspaper, "and we are committed to him."
