Kubica does time in Mercedes Formula 1 simulator 5 September, 2013 Robert Kubica after his last grand prix in Abu Dhabi in 2010 Robert Kubica has revealed that he spent time at the wheel of Mercedes‘ Formula 1 simulator at Brackley. It emerged several months ago that the Pole, who since his horror rally crash and injuries in early 2011 has returned full-time to world rally’s second-tier series, has also been keeping his Formula 1 skills up to date in conjunction with Mercedes’ development programme. “But I will not tell you how many times I’ve been there or how many laps I did,” Kubica said in May. The 28-year-old has now told Germany’s Auto Bild Motorsport: “In the last six months I have been in the Mercedes simulator more than once [but] less than ten times. “The work gives me the opportunity to see what limitations I have and how I continue to develop myself,” added Kubica. He added: “I have the feeling that Mercedes is happy with what I have been doing.” (GMM) Subbed by AJN.

Faceman Yeah, Kubica was a real racers’ racer. F1 controls would need to change dramatically for him to return… I give him full credit for not giving up even though his return is more than unlikely. Tamburello_1994 F-1 has already passed Kubica by sadly. Life is unfair and Formula one is down right cruel in this regard. Good luck in future endeavors, Robert. BadBoy Good news is: the more time he spends in the simulator, the less time he can crash his rallye car once again.
