Kubica: Would be nice to have a chance to race


Robert Kubica may be happy with what he’s achieved by returning to F1 as a reserve driver but says lining up on the grid as a race driver remains his goal.

Having suffered a severe arm injury in a rally crash in early 2011, it looked as if Kubica’s racing career was over.

Six years later he returned to the cockpit of a Formula 1 car when he tested for Renault before being handed a reserve driver role with Williams for the 2018 season.

Kubica, though, is still dreaming of racing.

“From one side, I’m happy to be testing and I’m happy that I have an opportunity thanks to Williams to be a part of the team and to have an opportunity to drive the car,” he told Sky Sports News.

“But once you are there, for sure it would be nice to have a chance.

“I have to concentrate on my job, which I am doing. What the future will bring, I do not know.

“If you re-look at the last 12 months of my life, I think I can be really happy with what I have achieved.”
