Polish driver Robert Kubica is looking for a home. A ride in F1. A place to get excited about. After struggling mid-way through the 2009 season, Kubica was met with a shock announcement that the BMW team would not return to F1 after 2009. This leave Kubica in a real fix as he had a contract with BMW until 2010.
The announcement was a shock to Nick Heidfeld, Kubicaâ€™s teammate, and to Christian Klien who is the test driver for BMW F1. Citing some odd fascination with re-deploying their money to bigger â€œgreenâ€ and â€œsustainableâ€ endeavors, BMW have politely closed a chapter on F1. Much to the dismay of fans, employees and drivers.
So where will Robert Kubica go? IS there any hope for Nick Heidfeld? Would Williams pick up either of them if Nico Rosberg jumps ship? Silly season is silly enough but when you throw in redundancies and the availability of good talent; things get a little sillier. Kubicaâ€™s manager said:
“There was no sign inside the team that something like this could happen. We take note of it,” Morelli told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Robert was under contract until the end of 2010, but now he’s officially on the market.”
