Robert Kubica to take part in Barcelona practice

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN reserve driver, Robert Kubica, will step into the cockpit of the team’s C42 for the first practice session of this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.

Robert, who was the first to take the wheel of the car in pre-season testing, at the same Catalonia venue that will see this weekend’s action, most recently drove the C42 during a Pirelli test session in Imola, less than a month ago. These fresh memories of the car will enable the experienced Pole to make the most of tomorrow’s one-hour session, providing the team with the superb technical feedback that has made Robert such a valuable asset for Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN.

Robert will drive the car of Zhou Guanyu, with the Chinese race driver returning to the cockpit for FP2 and the remainder of the weekend.
