Robert Kubica: “I’m very pleased with my performance”

Kubica DTM

Robert Kubica enjoyed his first test in the Mercedes DTM car at Valencia today, running a handy 114 laps on a day affected by rain.

His last appearance in an F1 car to date came at the same track with Lotus Renault GP on February 3 2011.

“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-Coupé,” 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.”
