Maldonado hits back at Crashtor reputation

Pastor Maldonado has fended off his growing reputation as a crash-prone F1 driver.

The Telegraph newspaper said a nickname doing the rounds for the Venezuelan is 'Crashtor', while one unflattering website mischievously lists the days and hours since Maldonado's last crash.

"The world is safe for another day," the website hasmaldonadocrashedtoday.com currently reads.

The PDVSA-backed Lotus driver, however, insists his reputation as a crasher is undeserved.

"When Pastor crashes, it's big news," said Maldonado. "When the other people crash, there is no news.

"To find the limit, you need to cross the limit. I think I have the big balls to cross the limit every time."

He is yet to score a point in 2015.
