Kubica to step in for Kimi

Robert Kubica will be at the helm of the Alfa Romeo C39 this Friday in the first free practice session of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The Pole, who has already taken part in three free practice sessions this year in Styria, Hungary and Great Britain, will replace Finland’s Kimi Raikkonen this Friday for the Bahrain Grand Prix.


“I am very happy to be back at the wheel for the first time since August.” explains Robert Kubica.

“It may seem long, but my season has been very busy with my simulator work at the factory and my DTM programme, so I felt like I was back in the driving seat for the first time since August, that it was going pretty fast.

“Now that my DTM season is over, I’m looking forward to to take up my position at Alfa Romeo Racing full time: there are still some a lot to do and I am convinced that my work will bring a positive contribution to the team’s efforts. ”

Robert Kubica should also take part in the FP1 of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix during the last race weekend of the year in December.
