Robert Kubica has completed his test with Mercedes DTM at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia where he racked up 114 laps.
It’s Kubica’s first time running a high-downforce car since his terrifying Rally crash two years ago. Today he ran a total of 456.570 Kilometres in the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupe.
“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,” said the Pole. “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.”
Robert Kubica is currently preparing to spend a season in European Rally Championship in what he’s hoping will push him further to an F1 return.
