We’re in a process with Kubica – Williams

Robert Kubica is in Williams F1 car as track action for two-day tyre test in Abu Dhabi. Williams assesses whether his injuries could affect his capability to return to Formula 1.

Williams F1 technical chief Paddy Lowe and performance chief Rob Smedley have stayed on in Abu Dhabi to follow his evolution.

“We all saw how he operated in Formula 1 in the past – he’s a great driver, very professional, very committed, enthusiastic, very intelligent. He’s an exciting prospect, that’s why we’re looking at him,” said Lowe.

“We’re in a process with Robert, which is a matter of evaluating whether his injuries will have an impact on his ability to drive in Formula 1, it’s as simple as that.”

Lowe said Williams made few changes in Kubica’s steering wheel – shifting up and down with the same paddle.

“There are a few changes we’ll make for switch gear and so on,” he said. “In actual fact, most drivers tune that to their preferences anyway.

“In most teams, you’ll find the steering wheel is different between the two drivers.
