Robert Kubica has explained that although he will be testing a Mercedes DTM car on Thursday, it is too early to discuss a potential future in the championship. The Polish driver, who is steadily recovering from a rallying accident in 2011, says he is simply grateful to the brand for allowing him to drive a car with 'good levels of downforce'.
"I’m really pleased that Mercedes-Benz is giving me the opportunity to test their DTM car and I’m looking forward to getting acclimatised to a race car again," said Kubica, who turned 28 last month. "It will be in proper testing conditions, on a permanent circuit, and it’s important because the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé has good levels of downforce."
In terms of where the test might lead, Kubica refused to make any predictions:
"It’s still too early to make any statements about my future because of this one test," he said. "I’m just looking forward to tomorrow and we’ll see what happens after that."
Kubica will be joined at the Mercedes test by former on-track rival Timo Glock, who announced earlier in the week that he has parted ways with the Marussia F1 Team.
