Robert Kubica finished 19th last week in Austin.

Haas F1 team principal Guenther Steiner is confirming that current Wiliams driver Robert Kubica is on Haas’ wish list for 2020 and beyond.
Kubica, who has been told he won’t be back for Williams in 2020, might accept a development driver role for 2020. Kubica has been linked with two teams — Haas and Racing Point.
Kubica said in Austin that his situation had suddenly become “more complicated, but it also means that I have interesting options.”

One of those options is that Ferrari sees the 34-year-old as an ideal development driver not just for the works Maranello team, but also for Alfa Romeo. The complication could be that Haas, while supported technically by Ferrari, might not be so keen on sharing Kubica with the other teams.
Another possibility is that Kubica might serve as Haas’ development driver in 2020 before potentially being offered a race seat for 2021.
“I really want to bring Robert to us, but I have to offer him something that will be interesting to him,” Steiner said. “We would love Kubica to help us develop the car. We know he is really good at that because he worked with several of our engineers from his time at Renault.
“Everyone appreciates his skills very highly. I am negotiating with Kubica, and I hope to welcome him on board soon.”
