WTCC: Citroën wants to run Kubica

By ,

In addition with his rally implication with Citroën, Robert Kubica is set to race several rounds of the World Touring Car Championship with the french squad, alongside Sébastien Loeb and Yvan Muller.

Since his competition return in rallying, after his crash in february 2011 that ended his Formula 1 career, Robert Kubica has impressed the Citroën Sport squad. While the Pole, who set great performances in WRC2 driving a Citroën DS3 RR3 modified, is rumoured to enter the main team as a works driver in WRC, he is now set to race selected rounds in WTCC next season.

"If we are doing something in rally, I will ask Robert to do one or two World Touring Car Championship events," said Matton, head of Citroën Motorsport to Autosport. Maybe some events we can run a test car to let him drive - but for sure he will not be involved as a championship driver next season.

"He is not interested in doing a full championship. But Robert is interested to drive in general and helping us with some advice and giving us some of his experience - he is interested in that, Matton added. He hasn't done any development testing yet. In our agreement from the start of the year, the plan was to let him drive the touring car and I hope that we can do this before the end of the year. He can give very good advice."
