'No problems' for Kubica at DTM test

'No problems' for Robert Kubica at DTM test | Formula 1 | Formula 1 news, live F1 | ESPN F1
January 24, 2013

Robert Kubica has completed his Mercedes DTM test at Valencia's Circuit Ricardo Tormo, logging 114 laps with "no problems whatsoever in the car".

It was Kubica's first return to a high-downforce car since his rallying accident two years ago and he completed a total of 456.570 kilometres in a DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupe. He started the test in wet conditions before completing the bulk of his running once the track had a chance to dry out.

"My first day of testing in a DTM car was great fun and I learned a lot about the series and the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupe," He said. "The first installation lap was in the dry, then a few heavy showers of rain came down and we had to wait for the track to dry out. All in all, it was a good experience, getting to know the car in different weather conditions.

"I was able to get to grips with the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé and felt very comfortable in the car, even though after my long break it meant adjusting to the high downforce that a state-of-the art DTM race car produces. I'm very pleased with my performance on this first day of DTM testing and had no problems whatsoever in the car."

Kubica is set to complete a season in the European Rally Championship this year and in the latest issue of F1 Racing magazine made his most promising comments yet about a return to F1.
