Robert Kubica: Net worth

Robert Kubica made his return to Formula One in 2019. His first taste of an F1 car was when he signed with Renault as a test driver. Sadly, his comeback only lasted a single year following a frustrating time with Williams. Kubica currently drives for Alfa Romeo as a reserve driver.

Driving for Williams in the 2019 season, Kubica made approximately just over $500000. According to some reports, his net worth is believed to be around $5 million.

Robert Kubica: Stats and achievements

A year later, he moved to Sauber, again in a test driver role. But he was promoted to a race seat after Jacques Villeneuve‘s departure. 2007 was his first full-time season and he proved to be a decent driver. However, in Canada, he had a horrific crash that kept him out for the US Grand Prix.

Incidentally, it also introduced the Formula One world to Sebastian Vettel. When he came back to France, he came back much stronger. He stayed with Sauber until 2009, following which he moved to Renault for a year. Sadly, a rally accident in early 2011 put paid to his F1 hopes for a painfully long time. But life has given him a second chance with a seat at Williams in 2019.

Robert Kubica

Prior to his Formula One debut, he won the 2005 Formula Renault 3.5 series. In his F1 tenure, he had a career-high ranking of 4th in 2008.

After his accident, he won the 2013 World Rally Championship-2. With regard to his F1 results, his maiden podium came in his third race for the BMW team. He has had one career win to his name, at the 2008 Canadian GP, barely a year after a horror crash at the same venue. Kubica has also amassed 11 podiums in five years.

Mere days after completing his preseason test with Renault, Kubica was involved in a horrifying rally accident in 2011. The Pole was competing in the Ronde di Andorra rally in Italy when a tricky right-hander effectively ended his hopes of a competitive future in F1.

Robert Kubica: Canada and Rally crash

Whilst negotiating a fast turn at high speed, Robert lost control of his car, which slammed into the barrier. The impact and timing of the crash resulted in the barrier impaling the car and Kubica’s right arm in the process. The accident resulted in Kubica sustaining multiple fractures to his shoulder, arms, and legs. However, the biggest injury was to his right hand, which was partially amputated.

But this wasn’t Kubica’s first dance with death. At the 2007 Canadian Grand Prix, Kubica suffered a massive crash after tangling with Jarno Trulli towards the hairpin at the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit. Thankfully, he wasn’t seriously injured.
