Auto racing: Polish F1 driver Kubica’s car livery unveiled

After dashing the hopes of their supporters by finishing last in the 2018 Formula 1 constructors’ championship, Oxfordshire-based ROKiT Williams Racing unveiled the livery for their new car, the FW42, that will zoom to the F1 grid in 2019 with Polish F1 driver Robert Kubica.

The car is set to be steered in 2019 by last year’s Formula 2 star, 20-year-old British racing driver George Russell and Mr Kubica.

Mr Kubica, 34, became the first Polish driver to compete in Formula 1. On February 6, 2011, he was seriously injured in a crash at the Ronde di Andora rally, in which his right forearm was partially severed.

The team that tweeted a video giving a glimpse of the machine would get to gauge the car’s performance when testing commences at Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit, Spain, on February 18.
