Kubica enjoying F1 return despite lack of competition

Robert Kubica insists that he is enjoying his return to Formula 1 despite the tough situation Williams finds itself in.

The Grove squad is competing at the back of the field in 2019, far away from the rest of the F1 grid. It has not come close to scoring points at the opening four races, often finding itself more than one lap down at the chequered flag.

Kubica, who returned to F1 this year after a nine-year absence, admits that he would like to compete against more cars, but is getting excitement out of driving an F1 car once more.

"Of course it would be nicer to race with more drivers and actually to be closer to the pack and to have proper fights," he said. "But, I did say something similar after Australia, I would never have thought it but in the end I did enjoy it.

"It’s still nicer to drive an F1 car than watching it on the television. Of course from one side as I said it would be nicer to have more performance.

"But still you can have the fun of doing things, of going through things which most of the feelings and things what are happening now didn’t happen for many years."

"It’s nice to get these feelings, it’s nice to have this special emotions and special feelings which you never get staying at home. And you still have to work and I enjoy working so I would say yes."

After the opening four races, Kubica has taken a best result of P16, and sits last in the drivers' championship, behind rookie teammate George Russell

    I think we all are dissapointed with Williams pace. But for sure we are dissapointed with Kubica's pace also since Russell looks a whole lot better than him. We can call this a rookie year for Robert and go easy with him but I doubt Williams can. Currently I see no reason to re-sing contract with him.
