F1: Williams reveals key factor in decision to sign Kubica for F1 2019

Robert Kubica’s decision to take on a reserve driver role in 2018 was a key factor in convincing Williams to offer him a full-time drive for the 2019 F1 season.
Having missed out on a full-time 2018 seat to Sergey Sirotkin, the Pole instead took on a reserve and development driver role at the British squad, a move that ultimately proved crucial in Williams’ decision to promote him alongside Formula 2 champion George Russell for 2019.
Williams: “He talks to me at 2AM in airport lounges around the world around what has gone wrong, what we need to be doing.”
