The head of Motorsport Department of Pirelli’s Mario Isola believes that Robert should be given more time so he could demonstrate his speed in the F1 car.
Robert was the main contender for the vacant seat at Williams for the season in 2018, but after the tests in Abu Dhabi team Williams, apparently, has decided in favour of Sergey Sirotkin.
“Sirotkin faster and more promising Kubica”. Andrew Benson about the choice of Williams
“Robert is a true professional with a huge experience behind them,’ said Isola in the comments RACER.com. – Even though Kubica have not appeared at the wheel of F1 machinery, he still has the necessary reflexes.
I asked his opinion about the tires, and he gave a clear analysis of their behavior, wear and other features of the rubber.
At the same time we cannot pretend that any driver [who was in a similar accident and who missed so much time] will be able to immediately jump in the car and go faster pilot who’s been in F1 a lot of tests. Give him time to get used to the new car to show its full potential. I still think Kubica is very fast pilot.”
