Pastor Maldonado's demo in his home country of Venezuela ended a little prematurely after he span his Williams, damaging the suspension on a roadside kerb.

The Williams team are in Venezuela to meet fans and partners during a six day visit which was meant to feature a 12-lap demo run around the capital, Caracus.

However, the 27-year-old completed two laps before he was caught out by the bumpy road surface and damaged the rear of the car, bringing an end to the run which was performed in front of 20,000 fans, local VIP's and team owners Sir Frank Williams and Toto Wolff.
