Maldonado says Williams is like a new team

Pastor Maldonado has said that Williams is now "completely different" to last year's team. "Everything is looking very different to last year... We are more concentrated, we have new people and the team is working very well. It's completely different... Everyone is pushing hard, and we feel more like a team... Everyone is working together more - even the drivers."

It's so unfair, why couldn't Williams become a new team while I was there?
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
You're missing the point there Barrichello... I think McDonalds was implying that it became a new team the minute you walked out the door.
Pastor   Pastor Maldonado
Many personnel changes breathe new life and bring fresh ideas into our team.
rondennis   Ron Dennis
Especially that little Coughlan shit, he brings plenty ideas from team to team... they're not bloody fresh ones though.
Williams   Frank Williams
Christ, two pay-as-you-go drivers and an IP theif, what's happening to me?
rossbrawn   Ross Brawn
Brawn GP was a brand new team in '09, Rubens - you didn't do much with that opportunity.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
I never had the same chances as Jenson, I signed my contract way later than him and you know it.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I think Ross thought a one-car team would be better than signing you Barrichello, but then he found out about the two-car regulation a bit too late in the day.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Really? Ferrari seem to have only had one car for a few years now.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
Sorry Felipe, but it's true - when you replaced me, everything went downhill at Ferrari.
rossbrawn   Ross Brawn
Indeed Rubens, some things went downhill - like complaints, headaches, meeting durations. Although both our drivers did take the blame for their own mistakes for a change.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
That's so unfair. It's not my fault nothing was ever my fault.

Since when is Williams a new team? Aren't we forgetting the newest team of all, Caterham F1?
Williams   Frank Williams
Christ, you're in your third year now Tony, time to stop playing the newbie card.
TheRealTony   Tony Fernandes
Actually, due to various acquisitions, strategic amalgamations and organisational reshuffling, it's quite clear that Caterham Renault Heikki Air F1 Asia should be considered a new entrant in the 2012 season.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I can just sense the petrol flowing through your veins Fernandes.
Williams   Frank Williams
Sorry Tony, I don't think the FIA make exceptions just because you tragically suffer from some kind of compulsive corporate rebranding disorder.
mikeg   Mike Gascoyne
It's all the same, we'll be taking on the big boys this year either way.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
Ooh, I'd like to be taken either way by those big boys, especially if they can work as a team.
