Wolff would 'love to see' Kubica back in an F1 car

Robert Kubica after completing the Abu Dhabi GP which was his last F1 race to dateIn one of his first roles as Mercedes motorsport boss, Toto Wolff will be overseeing the team’s DTM test programme for Robert Kubica this week in Spain.

Wolff has admitted that his new role will be mainly devoted to F1, attending all the grands prix as well as the major events on the DTM calendar.

Among his first duties will be keeping tabs on injured F1 driver Robert Kubica’s test this week in a Mercedes DTM car.

But Wolff played down the prospect of a return to Formula One for the Pole in the short term.

“If the DTM test goes well and we see that he is doing well in a proper race car with downforce, I think there are still some physical constraints to drive a monocoque chassis with his elbow and arm,” he said.

“I think we all would love to see Robert doing well in a Formula One car in the future but that is definitely too early at this stage.” (GMM)
