Robert Kubica will make his debut at the wheel of a LMP1 during the
traditional ‘rookie test’ WEC, appointment that will be celebrated this Sunday in Sakhir
after the dispute of the 6 Hours of Bahrain and in which you also stand
other drivers such as Gustavo Menezes, Luis Felipe Derani, or Paul-Loup Chatin. The Polish
will be at the wheel of the LMP1 team ByKolles Racing Team, being the
the first driver confirmed by the structure of the austrian for this test. A
experience on the CLMP P1/01 AER which will also serve to open another option
of the future for the Polish pilot, all time that Kubica has not yet defined its
program for 2017.
it Seems that Robert Kubica is willing to to get behind the wheel of any vehicle that is within your reach during this season, and this test with the CLMP P1/01 AER is the best example of this plan. All in all, this is testing with the LMP1-L ByKolles will be the first experience of the Polish pilot with a vehicle for power, feelings and behavior can be more or less close to what that offers a Formula 1 car, which makes this test in the perfect scenario to test the mobility of his right hand.
In this aspect, the performance of the LMP1-L ByKolles are very superior to those of the Renault R. S. 01 that has driven Robert Kubica at Spa-Francorchamps or during the past 6 Hours of Vallelunga, in which the Polish had to leave after a fight to the ecuador of the race for the positions on the podium next to their mates Matteo Bobbi and Davide Roda. The prototype of an austrian is also very superior and demanding in terms of piloting the Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3 which he shared with Martin Prokop in the 12 Hours of Mugello, where you also had to leave.
