Robert Kubica: “A long time since I drove a race car with a roof”

Robert Kubica has completed his first test with BMW during the DTM Young Driver Tests at Jerez today.

“It’s has been a long time since I have last driven a race car with a roof although DTM is more a Formula car with a roof,” said Kubica.

“As every car, it has its own characteristic and it feels different but I felt pretty comfortable in it straight away and I enjoyed it.”

The Polish driver took the wheel of the BMW M4 DTM during the second of three test days at the Spanish track alongside BMW junior driver Nick Yelloly.

“I had quite a good feeling in the car in the opening laps and this is always good. You are always looking forward to how your impressions will be and how comfortable you feel in the car regarding how you feel and how the car reacts,” said Kubica.

“Of course it is completely different to what I was used to in the past years but I think it has been a productive day so far and a good opportunity for me to understand a bit all the key points of this new category for me.”
