Robert Kubica’s Formula 1 return will take yet another step closer in August as Renault has confirmed he will take part in the post-Hungarian Grand Prix test on August 2.
It will be the third test in recent weeks for the 32-year-old, having driven a Lotus E20 at Valencia and Paul Ricard.
Cyril Abiteboul, Renault Sport Racing’s managing director, said: “The first two days of testing allowed both Robert and ourselves to gather a great amount of information. The upcoming session with the R.S.17 at the Hungaroring will allow us all to obtain detailed and precise data in a current car and representative conditions. After this test, we will carefully analyse the collected information to determine in what conditions it would be possible for Robert to return to competition in the upcoming years.”
