Robert Kubica’s return to F1 next year is now set in stone. That is the claim of the broadcaster RTL GP, echoing other sources including France’s Canal Plus that claim the Pole has now inked a Williams contract for 2018.

RTL GP says the 32-year-old’s contract is for 2018 and 2019.

Former F1 driver Robert Doornbos, who is a pundit for F1 broadcaster Ziggo Sport Totaal, told the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad: “I am happy to see Kubica back in F1.”

Kubica competed for Renault in Formula 1 in 2010, scoring three podiums in his season with the French manufacturer, before an injury sustained in a rallying crash in 2011 forced him to put his F1 career on hold.

Rosberg ‘working on F1 return for Kubica’

Former Renault chief Flavio Briatore claims that retired 2016 F1 world champion Nico Rosberg is ongoing to work hard to secure a drive for Robert Kubica with Williams 2018 season.
Speaking exclusively to Express Sport, Briatore said: “I don’t know.

“I talked with Rosberg last week, I saw Rosberg in Monaco, Rosberg is working to try to get him back driving.”

Villeneuve, Montoya, question Kubica comeback

Juan Pablo Montoya, referring to Kubica’s injury, called rumours that he could drive for Williams as ‘a joke’, while Jacques Villeneuve, who has been outspoken on a number of topics recently, was equally damning.

“I think the FIA needs to think carefully about how they can be 100 per cent sure that Robert is able to avoid accidents. Kubica himself should also think carefully about whether he wants to.

“This is not about lap times, he also has a responsibility to his colleagues. The same is true of Williams. If there is a serious accident, the responsibility will be great.”
