Renault to confirm Kubica tomorrow

Renault will be announcing Robert Kubica as its lead driver in 2010 in the course of the next 24 hours. It is not clear who will partner him but it is unlikely to be Romain Grosjean, who has seemed completely out of his depth since he replaced Nelson Piquet Jr. The team is saying nothing at the moment but the decision over a second driver will be taken in the off season. One man who might be in line for the job is Heikki Kovalainen, who is going to be ousted at McLaren when Kimi Raikkonen returns from Italy.
