Kubica dreams of F1 return following DTM test with Mercedes image

Robert Kubica said his DTM test with Mercedes has made him think about the possibility of one day driving an F1 car again.

The test in Valencia marked the first time the Pole drove a car with downforce since his February 2011 rallying accident. The test was also the latest step in his recovery from the injuries suffered nearly two years ago. Kubica said the AMG C-Coupe test went without problems and said the time spent behind the wheel reminded him of driving an F1 car.

“It is good to be here in the DTM car two years after I was here with F1. Of course I would prefer to be here in an F1 car but you have to do small steps, step by step, and maybe one day I will get the chance to drive an F1 car again here in Valencia or in general,” Kubica was quoted as saying by Crash.net.

He said he felt comfortable in the DTM car and admitted the German series was an option for the year ahead. “DTM could be an option but it depends from different factors and different things. But the most important one is the pace and I think the performance of myself is good. That’s the most important and then we’ll see,” Kubica said.
