Pastor Maldonado insists he has no intention of easing what he describes as an “extremely aggressive” driving style.

One analysis showed he was the driver penalised most often by the FIA in 2012.

But the 27-year-old Venezuelan insisted: “Every time I walk down a hallway in my house and see everything I’ve got with this style, I think I should continue on this path.

“Yes, I’ve had run-ins with other drivers, not only now but in the past,” Maldonado is quoted by Spain’s Marca sports newspaper.

“But I have won in each of the categories in which I have competed.

“That gives me strength to keep going, because you can always improve,” he added.
