Kubica to Ferrari?
Robert Kubica could take up a development role at Ferrari next season. The one-time grand prix winner has not given up returning to the F1 grid with Williams in 2019, having missed out on a sensational comeback this year, and is on the team’s shortlist. But Williams needs to commercialise its second seat and, while Kubica is believed to have access to more funding than before, it is not enough to plug a gap. Kubica is understood to have had discussions over a simulator position with Ferrari, which needs to replace Antonio Giovinazzi and Daniil Kvyat because its 2018 development drivers have secured ’19 F1 drives with Sauber and Toro Rosso, respectively.
