Kubica to weigh up F1 alternatives without 2019 seat

Written by  Sep 12, 2018

Robert Kubica has suggested his presence back in a Formula 1 paddock may only last one season if he can't find a race seat for 2019.

The Pole, who has recently admitted his attempted comeback could end in disappointment, has spent this year as reserve and development driver at Williams after losing out to Sergey Sirotkin for the place next to Lance Stroll.

With expectations low for a promotion for next season and limited options elsewhere, the 34-year-old admits opportunities he previously declined, such as in the WEC, could be more appealing.

“I spent a lot of time and effort to have a chance and the priority would be to be on the starting grid in Australia,” Kubica told Autosport.

“But if this doesn’t happen I would consider some different championship or a different role. As I said, now I’m focused on trying to get a chance.”

The problem the popular former Renault and BMW driver faces is limited opportunities to show and sharpen his skills.

“When you don’t do it for a long time or you do it like I do it, every three months, it’s normal that you have to go through different phases in order to get back your rhythm, get back feelings as natural as possible," he explained.

“If you would take even the best tennis player and you say to him: now you stop for six years. Even without injuries, nothing, then you give him one hour of training and smash him into the final of Wimbledon, he will probably struggle more than all the people who are playing regularly.

“I would have so much time in the car [if he had raced this season], there would be no more question marks about myself.”
