The contract with Kubica will bring Williams 10 million eurosNovember 23, 2018
At the beginning of the week, the Polish press reported that on Thursday in Abu Dhabi in Williams will announce a contract with Robert Kubica for the next season.
Today, the Polish radio RMF announced the return of the rider in Formula 1 as a fait accompli – the official announcement will be a mere formality.
The contract Kubica was made possible largely thanks to the sponsorship of the oil company PKN Orlen, which will pay Williams 10 million euros. This is the largest sponsorship contract in the history of Poland; in 2019, the PKN Orlen logos will appear on Williams cars, rompers and team uniforms.
The British edition of Motorsport Magazine also confirms the contract with Williams. For performances for the British team, Robert refused to offer Renault and Ferrari. In the French team he was offered to become a pilot on a simulator, while the contract with Scuderia assumed the status of the third rider and the possible participation in Friday’s training sessions as part of the season as part of Haas.
