Pastor Maldonado has vowed not to change his aggressive style despite yet another race weekend being hampered by a crash.
The Williams driver's second season in Formula One has seen several highs and lows ranging from his victory in Spain to his penalty for crashing into Lewis Hamilton at the last race in Valencia.
Maldonado, though, is adamant his latest incident won't result in him changing his approach.
"For sure, I will drive in the same way and so we need to push," Maldonado told Autosport.
"The gaps are very close and I think the drivers are making the difference at the moment."
The Venezuelan also insisted that his accident with Hamilton was nothing more than a racing incident.
"I saw the chance to get on the podium when I had a very difficult race, especially at the beginning when I was P10 and then I had a good race and I was looking forward to getting on the podium as well.
"One and a half laps from the end I saw the chance to take the position against Lewis and he tried to defend and I tried to attack and it was normal racing contact I think.
"I was disappointed because they were good points for the team and for me but there are many races ahead and the season is still long."
