Kubica confirmed at Renault
The Renault F1 team has confirmed that Robert Kubica will drive for the team from the 2010 season onwards. The 24-year-old Polish driver has proven his ability as a race-winning driver and whose aggressive and consistent racing style have seen him as a contender for last year's drivers' title.
"We are very excited to have signed Robert with the Renault F1, starting next season," said Bob Bell. "Ever since Robert made his Grand Prix debut in 2006, he has been on our radar as one of the most naturally talented drivers of his generation and he has delivered on that promise so it's great to have secured him in one of our cars next season. Renault has high ambitions and hopes for the future of the team and we feel that Robert can play a big role in fulfilling them."
Robert Kubica says he is very happy to be joining the team.
"I feel I have a special connection with this team because in 2005 I won the World Series by Renault," he says. "This gave me the chance to test with the team in Barcelona, which led to my debut in F1. I share with Renault a strong winning mentality and feel comfortable with their friendly and open attitude. I'm highly motivated and optimistic that together we can be at the front of the grid next year and hopefully fighting for the world title."
