Robert Kubica test with Williams F1 team successful

13 Octobre 2017

Kubica's F1 career had appeared to be over when he sustained serious arm and hand injuries in a rallying accident in February 2011, but his performance in a test for Renault at Valencia in June has placed him on the comeback trail.

The former Renault driver joined the French team in Hungary over the summer at the post-GP test organized at the Budapest track, and ran for a full day yesterday with Williams, which has short-listed the Pole for 2018 along with Paul di Resta and incumbent Felipe Massa.

"I think he can come back even stronger than before". "Mentally, I think probably he will be more aggressive: so I can only see good, good things for him".

'In terms of his physical conditions, years and years ago, when I had a race team, we had a guy called Archie Scott-Brown who drove for us.

Macalester grad's 'Jeopardy' streak comes to an end
Game shows have an uncanny ability to create modern folk heroes, and the latest was Austin Rogers of Jeopardy! fame. He'll be back on " Jeopardy " on November 6 competing in the two-week tournament of champions.

"I think he (Kubica) got really unlucky with Renault".

It has left Ecclestone convinced there could be big marketing and sponsorship gains to be had if he lands a race drive. Prior to his Formula 1 departure, Kubica won the 2008 Candian Grand Prix for BMW Sauber. "Maybe they are going to lose Felipe Massa at the end of the year, I should think he has probably had enough, and if Robert is on board then he might wake up a lot of people there".

'The team hasn't been performing as well as it should have done, and whether it is because of drivers or the team in general, I don't know. "Nobody knows. So it would be nice to get a guy who should be quick in the auto to find out". "In that moment suddenly Sainz became free because of the whole engine mix, but that's how it works", said Mercedes' retired 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg, who is assisting Kubica.
