kubica has spoken of Alfa Romeo. Last week, Alfa Romeo announced that Polish company PKN Orlen had become its official co-title sponsor, with Kubica joining as part of the deal to work alongside Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.

Kubica described his return to Alfa Romeo as a “comeback home“, as he made his F1 debut with the same factory team, when it was known as BMW Sauber in 2006
“Hi everyone, it’s Robert.,” he said in a social media video. “I’m here in Hinwil, a kind of comeback home where I started my career in Formula 1 in 2006.
“It’s very nice to be back in this environment, I have seen many people which I worked with in the past. I just did the seat fit in the new car, so I’m looking forward not only to drive the car, but also to work with the team.”
