Sometimes they go back. It’s the case of the Polish driver Robert Kubica that immediately comes back to the Circus after having just been sent away by Williams. https://motorlat.com/notas/f1/14237/kubica-f1-return-was-about-personal-satisfaction#.Xg3GOF6tIe8.
The 35-year-old came back in Formula 1 after a bad accident that kept him away for a long time. He drove for Williams as an official driver but at the end of the 2019 season he was replaced by the young – and rich- Nicholas Latifi, who will join Claire Williams in her team side by side with George Russell.
Nothing to worry about, though, as Kubica has at his side a sponsor that believes in him, PKN Orlen.
The Pole went out from Formula 1 from the front door and returned from the back door, in Alfa Romeo.
PKN Orlen is now a “co-title sponsor” and Robert Kubica will be the new reserve driver and he will be the test- driver too.
What should we expect from Alfa Romeo in 2020, then?
Let alone these news, nothing really changes and Alfa will go on like it was on the plan.
The new car’s name will stay C39 and the official drivers’ line-up will be the one that the team announced at the end of the season, the same of this season, Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.
The boss, Frederic Vasseur is excited of the news and warmly welcomes Kubica in his team – “We are happy to welcome the new sponsor and we are also delighted to delighted to welcome Robert back home and we cannot wait to start working with him.”
About his carrer, Vasseur says about Robert- “He is a driver that needs no introduction: one of the most brilliant in his generation and one who displayed the true meaning of human determination in his fight to return to racing after his rallying accident. It will be a luck to have him as both a test and reserve driver, as his feedback will be invaluable as we continue to push our team towards the front of the grid.”
