Williams drivers Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna had a challenging day in Korea as neither came close to scoring a point.

Both drivers elected to start the race on the option tyre, with Maldonado stopping just once and Senna adopting the more traditional strategy of stopping twice.

But Maldonado could only manage fourteenth, narrowly ahead of Senna, who lost a lot of time early on with debris caught in his front wing.

"At the beginning of the race, we were too hard on the front tyres which meant that we couldn’t go as fast as we would have liked", said Maldonado.

"After the pitstop things were better and we were able to do 30 laps on that set of tyres. Overall, we were not fast enough this weekend, so we need to work out why and try to improve for the next race".

Senna was equally downcast after a trying race.

"It was a frustrating race for me because I didn’t make many mistakes this weekend which makes it all the more disappointing to finish where we did", he said. "We need to work hard on the issues we’ve been having because the grid is very close. We will keep pushing and if we have a weekend where we get everything together, we can be in the points again".
