The potential good news story of season 2018 looks to be a busted flush. Robert Kubica seems to now be out of the running for the Williams seat…


That’s rubbish, I really want to see Kubica back :frowning:


Driving an RX8?


F1 car with a hybrid rotary, oh yeah…


But it wouyld run out of fuel at about half distance :slight_smile:


Also the case.


Seems like Kubica won’t be getting the Williams gig.

Assuming it’s because he wasn’t quick /consistent enough (and not just because of Sirotkin’s $$$ ) it’s a shame that such a cracking fairytale has been dashed


6 posts above :smirk:


Kubica is not quick enough. I suppose hope springs eternal but once Renault found this Williams, it seems to me, wasted a lot of track time running him.
Sadly none of the possibles are likely to be much quicker than Massa and nowhere near as knowledgeable.


This has been around a while but it still makes me chuckle…


While I don’t know a great deal about Sirotkin, I’d have thought they are looking at the wrong Russian.

With a bit of TLC Kyvat really should be a vert decent driver. As Marko recently, and ever so helpfulyl, pointed out to the fella he sacked


It would run out of oil way, way before the fuel. :smiley:


Anyone read Newey’s book? Santa came down the chimney with it, though I have so far struggled to find ime to sit down with it.


I have a week off from Sunday, it’s earmarked for then :+1:
