Renault won’t help Kubica if he signed another team for 2013

Published

Lotus-Renault team boss Eric Boullier says he won’t help Kubica if he signed another team for 2013 and he want to understand if Kubica could be back and Renault commitment of Kubica for the medium term. And Boullier added that Kimi Räikkönen is a possible scenario for next season racing seat

But, should Kubica come back to action next season, Boullier is questioning whether it would be possible for them to help him if he has already commit his future to another team. Latest story bounded that, Kubica already agreed to move to Ferrari in 2013.

“I need to understand if he could be back, and the commitment of Robert for the medium term,” Boullier told Autosport.

“I will not bring a car for him and make a nice test for him if in 2013 he has signed already an option elsewhere.”

But, for now, he’s concentrating on his team’s 2012 line-up and expects to make an announcement in the next two weeks.

“We have discussed at length the different scenarios, and we have had time because with Robert, we were expecting and waiting for news, and now it is in the hands of the board.

“There is a different strategy with different drivers. It should just be a question of days – either this week or next week maximum.”

Renault have Vitaly Petrov under contract for next year’s Championship while Bruno Senna, who replaced Nick Heidfeld earlier this season, and Romain Grosjean are also vying for a place.

But, so too, is Kimi Raikkonen.

“Kimi is a possible scenario… yes, if you want,” Boullier said.

“But the list is long, and there are even some drivers under contract (elsewhere), who have some clauses to get out of their contracts. So the list is quite long.”
