Now, the Pole has seems to have began testing with Williams F1 team, and has just competed his first test with the team.

"I think he (Kubica) got really unlucky with Renault".

British Formula One team Williams should be trying to convince Polish racer Robert Kubica to join them, former CEO of the Formula One Group Bernie Ecclestone has said, according to the website. The Pole has returned to contention this year and was given a series of tests by Renault, culminating in a day behind the wheel of this year's auto at the post-Hungarian Grand Prix test in Budapest.

All a spokesman for the British team would say about the Polish driver's run in a 2014 auto was that it had been deemed a success.

F1 world champion Nico Rosberg has elected to help get involved in managing Kubica, which Ecclestone reckons is a big endorsement of the belief people have in him. "It is about getting to know each other and if it fits well it will be absolutely awesome to see Kubica back on the grid and in F1". Kubica was the star of the two-day test at circuit at the start of the summer break, with a large Polish contingent turning out to watch him drive.

Renault ended up taking Carlos Sainz on loan from Toro Rosso for next season as a replacement, with the Spaniard joining the team already for next week's US Grand Prix in Texas. Given his short preparation time Di Resta made an impressive appearance and is believed to have been pushing for a full-time return ever since.

"We will test those two drivers", he said.
