Kubica confrims Mercedes F1 simulator test

Robert Kubica

Robert Kubica has confirmed he has spent time in the Mercedes AMG F1 simulator, although he remains coy on the finer details of his experience.

“I can say yes, I was there. But I cannot say how many times or how many laps I did,” Kubica said. “But there is this rumour to which I say, yes, I was in the Mercedes F1 simulator in the past.”

The test is likely to have come about thanks to Kubica’s relationship with Toto Wolff, head of Mercedes motorsport. Wolff arranged for Kubica to test a Mercedes DTM car in February as well.

Kubica isn’t sure, or at least isn’t saying, if he has any future test sessions in the simulator planned.

Last November Kubica said he was uncertain if he would ever be able to recover sufficiently from the injuries he sustained in February 2011 to drive an F1 car again. But he now thinks he has the required strength to drive some of the less physically demanding F1 circuits.
