Kubica tested in Renault F1 simulator

Robert Kubica recently tested in Renault's F1 simulator, team boss Frederic Vasseur has admitted.

The highly rated Pole Kubica, now 31, has been out of formula one since almost severing his arm in an early 2011 rallying crash.

He has raced in the world rally championship, and last weekend he finished on the podium as he made his return to circuit racing in the Renault Sport Trophy at Spa.

Kubica clearly still has a strong relationship with Renault -- his last team in F1.

When asked about Kubica's strong result at Spa, Vasseur said: "It is no secret that Robert has spent time in the simulator at Enstone.

"I have a good relationship with him. It was interesting for me to put him in the simulator to get his feelings, as he has great experience in this world, and much of it in our cars," he added.
