Lotus driver Pastor Maldonado says he is eager to build on his recent encouraging form at next weekend's 'special' British Grand Prix.

Maldonado claimed seventh position in Canada and Austria to return to the pints following a lengthy absence and the Venezuelan is eager to return to a 'special' Silverstone, having claimed victories at the circuit in GP2.

"I think that Silverstone is an amazing track," he said. "It has a great history, it’s fast and the change to the most recent layout hasn’t really changed the nature of the track too much.

"It’s always a special place to visit and you know that you’re always there for the racing as it’s not on the doorstep of a big city. I have always enjoyed racing at Silverstone since my first visit back in 2007.

"I also have good memories of it as I have had some great races there, including winning in both 2009 and 2010 in the GP2 Series."

Maldonado says he has been boosted by recent results after a poor start to the campaign.

"It’s good for me and it’s good for all of the team," he said. "It was frustrating for everyone to be pushing so hard with no reward until Canada, so to score in Canada and Austria has been great.

"Scoring is what we’re all here for so we’ll keep pushing for points at every race."
