Williams confirmed that Robert Kubica will be one of the two riders for the 2019 season on Thursday. The pole returns to Formula One nine years after the last Grand Prix.
Nine years after the last Grand Prize, Robert Kubica will return next year in Formula 1. His hard work to find the car after his terrible rally accident in February 2011 has finally paid off. His years of reconstruction, which gathered together for the first time (from 2012 to 2015), then in the circuit (resistance and GT) allowed him to get a chance with Renault last year. It was Williams' turn to evaluate it during the end of the Abu Dhabi season tests. Overtaken by Sirotkin, in the crono portfolio, Pole was condemned to wait a year as a reservist of the English team.
But next year, he will be at the beginning, along with the young British, George Russelll, the next champion of Formula 2 and Mercedes-protected. Unfortunately, it closes the last possible track for Esteban Ocon, seeking a seat for 2019. His future will certainly be a reserve role for Mercedes and Force India.
