Robert Kubica on DTM test: It is completely different to what I was used

Robert Kubica has said that he felt comfortable as soon as he stepped into his BMW M4 DTM car despite it being different to what he is used to. The former Williams driver drove the car at Jerez on Thursday and will combine a simulator role with a DTM race seat in 2020. 

"It's has been a long time since I have last driven a race car with a roof although DTM is more a formula car with a roof," said Kubica to

"As every car, it has its own characteristic and it feels different but I felt pretty comfortable in it straight away and I enjoyed it.

"I had quite a good feeling in the car in the opening laps and this is always good.

"You are always looking forward to how your impressions will be and how comfortable you feel in the car regarding how you feel and how the car reacts.

"Of course, it is completely different to what I was used to in the past years but I think it has been a productive day so far and a good opportunity for me to understand a bit all the key points of this new category for me."

Kubica will hope to be successful in DTM and show his racing skills in a different series.
