As he hopes to arrive back in Formula 1 on a full-time contract, Robert Kubica lapped the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi 100 times on Tuesday. The Pole was taken part in a post-season test with Williams, as he hopes to become Felipe Massa's replacement for next year.
Kubica's comeback gained attention earlier this year when he completed a number of private tests with Renault before taking part in the in-season test at the Hungaroring. Kubica's F1 career was cut short in 2011 when he was involved in a life-threatening rally crash.
While a comeback with Renault seemed on the cards, the team opted to run with Carlos Sainz for next year, which left Kubica eyeing the Williams seat. It is believed that he is the favourite to get the drive, with chief technical officer Paddy Lowe pushing for the deal to be done.
Kubica clocked in 100 laps before handing the car over to Lance Stroll. The 32-year-old is scheduled to drive the FW40 again tomorrow for half of the day, with Russian Sergey Sirotkin getting behind the wheel also on Wednesday.
