Kubica does time in Mercedes Formula 1 simulator
5 September, 2013
Robert Kubica has revealed that he spent time at the wheel of Mercedes’ Formula 1 simulator at Brackley.
It emerged several months ago that the Pole, who since his horror rally crash and injuries in early 2011 has returned full-time to world rally’s second-tier series, has also been keeping his Formula 1 skills up to date in conjunction with Mercedes’ development programme.
“But I will not tell you how many times I’ve been there or how many laps I did,” Kubica said in May.
The 28-year-old has now told Germany’s Auto Bild Motorsport: “In the last six months I have been in the Mercedes simulator more than once [but] less than ten times.
“The work gives me the opportunity to see what limitations I have and how I continue to develop myself,” added Kubica.
He added: “I have the feeling that Mercedes is happy with what I have been doing.” (GMM)
