There has been plenty of love lost between Robert Kubica and the RoKit Williams F1 team. The Polish veteran has often been highly critical of the struggling Formula One team. Recently, he admitted that he felt that they didn’t do enough to solve any issues in his two years with the team.
During his tenure, Williams have established themselves as the official backmarkers in F1. This status had been bestowed upon them since 2018, from 7 points to 1 point in 2019.
Robert Kubica will not not be racing for the team any longer, with Nicholas Latifi being roped in. However, Kubica will not remain idle in 2020 as he recently completed a DTM test with BMW.
“I think as a group, with me involved, we haven’t done enough in the last 24 months,” Kubica told the media. “I am here exactly more than 24 months and when you sit down and George is commenting the same comments as I’m highlighting.”
“When you look at the first five laps of the Williams car in Abu Dhabi, then it shows we have not done enough in the last 24 months, and I am saying it as a group because I have been and still for a while a part of this group.
The 35-year old could only express his abject disappointment with how the situation played out. He was of the opinion that the team should have reacted better to fix the car’s issues instead of brushing it under the carpet.
Following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Robert Kubica confessed that the season did little to adjudicate his skill. He wanted to know if he was still as fast as he was before his accident.
He affirmed that when racing at the front, the feeling is far different from being a backmarker. On a more personal note, he was disappointed with his less-than-stellar results.
