Robert Kubica completes 'successful day' of testing for Williams at Silverstone

Robert Kubica completes 'successful day' of testing for Williams at Silverstone”

Ahead of the two day shoot-out, which will see both drivers enjoy a full day in the (2014) auto, Kubica was given running time at Silverstone today in order to acclimatise himself with the vehicle.

Kubica partially severed his right arm in a rallying crash back in 2011 that brought a sudden halt to a grand prix career which had seen him earmarked as a future champion. The Pole has returned to contention this year and was given a series of tests by Renault, culminating in a day behind the wheel of this year's vehicle at the post-Hungarian Grand Prix test in Budapest.

All a spokesman for the British team would say about the Polish driver's run in a 2014 vehicle was that it had been deemed a success.

The Williams Formula 1 team is not releasing any information concerning Robert Kubica and his recent test at Silverstone Circuit.

The British team have one available seat alongside Canadian teenager Lance Stroll in 2018.

Kubica recently enlisted the services of reigning world champion Nico Rosberg as his manager. Physically he is 100 percent in the auto, so it's a really exciting time, ' Rosberg told Sky Sports television at the weekend in Japan. Kubica's fans were forced to find other places from which to watch the track's activities, and though few good angles were found, some fans nevertheless got solid footage of Kubica in action.

"Williams want to take the fastest possible driver out there and this guy is seriously impressive with unbelievable speed so that is why he is being evaluated".

The Pole, who won in Canada with BMW Sauber in 2008, is scheduled for a fuller assessment at Budapest's Hungaroring this month with Williams' British reserve driver Paul di Resta also due to feature in that two-day test.

"We will test those two drivers", he said. Given his short preparation time Di Resta made an impressive appearance and is believed to have been pushing for a full-time return ever since.
