Robert Kubica: New 2020 F1 opportunities have opened
Robert Kubica says he hopes to have a “relaxed December” but that new opportunities have arisen that has delayed the finalisation of his 2020 plans.
Kubica will leave Williams at the end of the campaign and will be without a seat on the 2020 Formula 1 grid, though is understood to be lining up a test/reserve role, alongside a race deal elsewhere.
Haas has sounded out Kubica over a simulator and test position but the Pole revealed that potential chances elsewhere mean he is still evaluating his opportunities.
“Things are reasonably well I would say,” he said last weekend at the United States Grand Prix.
“There are some probably new opportunities, or different opportunities, which turn out lately, so we’ll have to see if we can make it work and if this happens I can have a good and relaxed December, that something good would happen, but until there is no final decision and have to look realistically.
“And until there is no signatures on the papers it’s better to be realistic.
“But for some reason it’s maybe more complicated than I would like but if it’s more complicated it means there are some good opportunities.
“It would be more of a problem if things were easy as it would mean nothing is happening, so we’ll have to wait a bit.”
Kubica added that interest in his services were encouraging given his and Williams’ difficult 2019 campaign, which has been spent at the back of the grid.
“Although this season is very disappointing, and we haven’t done a big progress during the year, people still know a value which I can give,” he said.
“Then there is a chance of how big an opportunity I will have to contribute to different teams, definitely I think this is a positive thing, still some people believe I can do a good job and this is something very positive to see, especially after such a disappointing year this year.”
