Former Formula 1 driver Robert Kubica will test a Mercedes-Benz Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters car in Valencia next week, according to this week’s Autosport magazine.
Pole Kubica was forced out of F1 in February 2011 after suffering a crash whilst competing in the pre-season Ronde di Andora Rally. During the event Kubica hit the end of an armco barrier and had to undergo seven hours of surgery to his right hand and forearm. Having spent a considerable period in recovery, Kubica missed the entire 2011 season due to his serious hand-injury.
Having returned to competitive motorsport in the second half of 2012, Kubica recently signed to contest ten rounds of the European Rally Championship at the wheel of an M-Sport Ford Fiesta, where he will make his debut in the Canary Islands on the 21st March 2013.
Despite his DTM test in Spain next week, it appears unlikely that Kubica will be able to compete in the DTM due to his rally commitments.
