Polish F1 driver Robert Kubica took the wheels of the William’s FW42 racing car at Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit, Spain, on Thursday.
The Williams FW42 is the car the Williams F1 Team will use in the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship.
Mr Kubica kicked off the testing, however, Polish private radio broadcaster RMF reports that the “main star” of Thursday was not Mr Kubica but last year’s Formula 2 star and team-member, 20-year-old British racing driver George Russell. Mr Kubica, after finishing nine laps, was by far the slowest in the field. The poor result was caused due to aerodynamic reasons, RMF states.
The team tweeted the video from the time Mr Kubica took to the track.
