On 6 February came the F1 career of Robert Kubica suddenly to an end. The Pool crashed during a test for the Rally of Andorra, and his world was through a guardrail pierced. Equally, it was feared that a hand of Kubica would be amputated should be but eventually, the doctors managed to his hand to save.
After years of rehabilitation and some F1 testing makes the Pool this year, his comeback, after many hopes of a comeback by Kubica had stored away. In addition to the experience of Kubica, even though the experience from a distant past, opted for Williams for George Russell.
Russell crowned last season’s champion in the Formula 2, the opstapklasse of the Formula 1. The 20-year-old Briton managed to Lando Norris, the replacement of the belgian Stoffel Vandoorne at McLaren, to beat.
