The 2013 season of the World Rally Championship is about to come to an end and with it we will see the first performance of Robert Kubica at the wheel of a World Rally Car (new generation) after testing in secret last year the Ford Fiesta RS WRC M-Sport team. Polish Citroen DS3 will feature WRC Khalid Al Qassimi officer to compete in the Rally of Wales, possibly one of the most complicated citations and demanding schedule.
For the occasion, Kubica will change Co-pilot, going from having the services of his usual “dance partner” in the WRC2, Maciek Baran, and opting for Michele Ferrara , Andrea Crugnola right hand at Alpine country. It is expected that the pilot chooses Citroen Racing make some notes in Italian, a language that is fluent and that several previous copilots Robert and have been used in competition.
The recently proclaimed after the Catalunya Rally, World Champion WRC2 (finally Al Kuwari also compete in Wales), still has not made his decision in the face of 201 in April, but has already ensured that the result will get next week will not change their decision. With the chance to continue one more season in the WRC with Citroen or M-Sport, Kubica has more options on the table.
The signing of the two chevrons have you also want to compete any round of the World Touring Car with C-Elysee WTCC , but it seems that former Formula 1 driver does not stop to be for the work, while still having the dream to return one day the great circus circuits. Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz is once again interested in signing Robert to compete in the DTM, as happened last season when he made a test on one of the star cars in the Cheste circuit.
Even talking about the possibility of alternating the two programs in the WRC and the DTM, which was discussed last year and apparently, both Germans and French would be willing. The last talks between Mercedes-Benz and Kubica were in Rally Alsace and virtually nothing has been revealed to them.
