After almost eight years after his incident, Robert Kubica has agreed a deal to race for Williams in the 2019 season. In January 2018, it was announced Kubica would become the reserve and development driver for Williams. Earlier he was offered a testing position for Ferrari and there was also said to be interest from Renault to use his skills in the simulator but he has now definitively chosen to make his come-back in F1 and will be driving next to Formula 2 talent George Russel.

In 2011 the 33 year old Polish driver was competing in a Skoda Fabia where he was seriously injured during a crash at the Ronde di Andora rally where he nearly lost his hand.
Kubica had been very open about being determined to make a return to Formula 1, however, he initially stated that a return would be "nearly impossible" due to his injury.
