Robert Kubica eyes testing role with Haas F1 Team
Soon-to-be former Williams driver has scored one point in his return to Formula 1
Williams F1 driver Robert Kubica could be heading to the Haas F1 Team for 2020.
Haas F1 team principal Guenther Steiner said in Mexico, ahead of Sunday’s Formula 1 Mexican Grand Prix, that talks are currently taking place about a test role for next season.
When asked about Steiner’s comments, Kubica joked in Mexico, “Maybe he was dreaming? I hope not, because I wish for better dreams for everybody.
“Of course, time is running out so I need to be getting close to solutions, but it will take some time. There are a few things that need to connect to one another, but it looks pretty good.”
Kubica is believed to have sponsorship by Polish energy company PKN Orlen and a possible landing spot outside of F1 with the German touring car series DTM. Rival F1 team Racing Point is reportedly also interested in securing the Orlen deal.
Kubica, who has been told he won’t have a ride with Williams next season, has fallen out completely with Williams, after the 34-year-old slammed the team for removing a new front wing from his car at Suzuka.
“It wasn’t that I didn’t get the front wing,” Kubica said. “It was about how it happened and why certain decisions were made. I don’t think there is any tension. The situation is not easy for anyone, but I have a good relationship with the team still.”
