Maldonado is hoping to feel the support from Venezuelan fans, as it is the closest Grand Prix to his home country.
"The Brazilian Grand Prix is very special and there’s no better place to finish the season".
"The atmosphere is very Latin American and the fans are some of the most passionate and knowledgeable in the world".
"It’s also close to Venezuela so I always see lots of Venezuelan flags around the track and lots of Venezuelan people around Sao Paulo so it feels a bit like a home Grand Prix".
Maldonado crashed out in Brazil last season, but is aiming to end a winning season on a positive note.
"The whole team will want to finish the season with a strong result and head into the winter with some good momentum".
