Robert Kubica

Robert Józef Kubica (born 7 December 1984 in Kraków, Poland) is a Polish racing driver. He became the first Polish driver to compete in Formula One. Between 2006 and 2009 he drove for the BMW Sauber F1 team, promoted from test driver to race driver during 2006. In June 2008, Kubica took his maiden F1 victory in the Canadian Grand Prix, becoming the 99th driver to win a World Championship race.

On 6 February 2011, Kubica was seriously injured in a crash at the Ronde di Andora rally, in which his forearm was partially severed. He was taking part in the rally for personal enjoyment.

Kubica returned to racing in September 2012, winning a minor rally in Italy. Kubica was named one of "The Men of the Year 2012" by Top Gear magazine for his return. In 2013, he drove for Citroën in the European and World Rally-2 Championships. He went on to win the inaugural WRC-2 title, with five wins from seven starts.

In his victorious WRC-2 campaign, his co-driver was Maciej Baran, but for the last round of the season Baran was replaced by Italy's Michele Ferrara. In 2014, Maciek Szczepaniak became Kubica's co-driver.
