The Polish driver's grand prix career was halted after he severely damaged his right arm following a rally accident in early 2011. Kubica has since competed in world rallying - winning the WRC2 title in 2013 - and has tested a variety of racing cars. In June, he drove a Renault E20 F1 car for the first time since his accident.
Kubica also drove that car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend. Speaking to Autocar at the event, the 32-year-old Pole said driving an F1 car again had been “easier than expected”.
“My confidence issues were gone in three laps, so I could get back into the rhythm,” Kubica added. “I was shocked how fast the adaptation was, or at least there was not really adaptation [to do] for me.”
