Kubica: There is no magic

Robert Kubica says there is "no magic" after another disappointing performance at the Canadian Grand Prix.

The Williams man was comfortably beaten by teammate George Russell, with Kubica finishing the race down in 18th place and last of the classified runners.

It means Kubica is yet to beat his teammate in 2019 and speaking after the race it seems as though he is at a loss as to where the gap in performance is coming from.

"Unfortunately, there is no magic," the Pole said.

"Yesterday the handling was difficult, but today was harder. I had no grip with high fuel, hotter conditions and longer stints. Overall grip is missing, we know it’s like this, so we are not able to push."

Kubica added it felt more similar to rallying than racing Formula 1 car, explaining he had no grip throughout the race.

“Difficult race, a much more difficult day than Saturday – and that was difficult! The car was sliding a lot during qualifying on the softest tyres and low fuel so during the race, it felt awful.

“[It was] More like rally driving than racing and, unfortunately, that doesn’t work in Formula 1. It was really tough to keep it on track, even though I was going very slow so we have to understand that.”
