Kubica to drive at Goodwood Festival


Robert Kubica will have another stint in the 2012 Lotus after the Pole was confirmed for the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 29 – July 2.

Kubica already has 115 laps under his belt in the E20 after completing a private test for Renault in Valencia earlier in June.

And now he will drive up the famous 1.16-mile hill-climb at the end of this month as he continues to get accustomed to Formula 1 cars again after his horrific rally accident in 2011 which left his arm partially amputated.

Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul recently revealed that Kubica is not "currently on the list" for a Renault seat, but the Pole himself believes he still has the pace to return to the grid.

Following his private test, Kubica is one of the names linked with Jolyon Palmer's seat, with the Brit now under immense pressure to perform after a very poor start to the season.
