Pastor Maldonado's new Lotus Evora S

Being a Formula One driver has its privileges. First off, you get to drive F1 cars for a living. You get treated like royalty and fly around the world. And if you’re lucky, you might get a supercar thrown at you once in a while. It all depends on which team you drive for.

Fernando Alonso, for example, has had countless Ferraris, Maseratis, Abarths and Jeeps thrown his way. Lewis Hamilton was a little disappointed not to get the keys to that rare McLaren F1 LM when he won the championship. But Pastor Maldonado just got his hands on a new Lotus Evora S.

Pastor who now, you ask? Pastor Maldonado. The first Venezuelan driver in F1, Maldonado won the GP2 title in 2010 then made the jump to F1, driving for Williams for the past three seasons, impressively winning the Spanish Grand Prix in 2012. Now he’s at Lotus filling Kimi Raikkonen’s seat, and took delivery of his white Evora – complete with 3.5-liter supercharged V6 and six-speed sequential gearbox – in Monte Carlo last weekend during the Monaco Grand Prix.

It might not be quite as fast as his Lotus-Renault E22, but considering that Maldonado has yet to score a single championship point this season – in fact he’s failed to make it to the finish line as many times as he has in 2014 – maybe the Evora will prove a more reliable performer for him.
