Robert Kubica knows his career is realistically over in F1

Robert Kubica endured a pretty tough year as a backmarker with Williams in 2019 and having been replaced at the team by Nicholas Latifi, the Pole is staying positive about his future, but realises that it is highly likely he has raced for the final time in Formula 1. Kubica's emotional return to F1 after eight full seasons out didn't go the way as he would've wanted, scoring just one point.

At 35 years of age, it's unlikely to see another team take a gamble on Kubica, which leaves him with very little chance of ever racing in F1 again. 

He has recently tested for BMW Motorsport in a DTM car, so he seems to have some options, but he knows they are not in F1.

He told Autosport: “You never know in your life.

“Of course, if in the future I will not be in the paddock, there is a very slim chance.

“If I will be in the paddock, then everything might happen. I’m keeping my feet on the ground and realistically there’s a much higher chance that this was the last race that I will race again.

“This is a realistic overview.”
