Robert Kubica has been officially confirmed as a test and development driver at Alfa Romeo Racing and PKN Orlen as the official co-sponsor of the F1 team. The Alfa Romeo team was created in place of the Sauber team, the first team of the Polish driver in F1.
RMF FM radio station announced today the transition of Robert Kubica to the F1 Alfa Romeo Racing team and the sponsorship involvement of the Polish Oil Concern Orlen in the new team of the Pole. We are most interested in information about the cooperation of Orlen with Sauber Motorsport, which is the owner of the F1 team and conducts extensive training and preparation of drivers for starts in cars.
„As part of the cooperation between the company and the team, both entities will deal with youth training, as part of the Orlen Karting Academy, run by Sauber Motorsport. Three young drivers from Poland will join her” – announced RMF FM.
This is extremely important and valuable information for the entire karting environment in Poland. Especially for karting drivers belonging to the Orlen Team Academy. It will be a continuation of Orlen’s activities in the Polish karting paddock, which the company started in 2017. In this way Orlen wants to select and train the successors of Robert Kubica. Orlen has been the strategic sponsor of the Polish karting series Rotax Max Challenge and Rok Cup Poland for three past seasons. Last season in the competitions of both series we saw 190 players. 30 of them belong to the ORLEN Team Academy.
Sauber Motorsport is a company well known to all motorsport supporters. It has been operating in the world of racing for many years. In addition to his involvement in F1, he also runs a driver academy with his teams in the Sauber Junior Team racing teams at F2, F3 and F4, which are made up of former karting drivers. Sauber’s junior team includes Callum Illot, Juan Correa, Theo Purchaire and Roman Stanek. They all we know well from karting tracks.
Sauber Motorsport is also the owner of the Sauber Karting Team created in the 2019 season, in which the colors of the karting world champion Dexter Patterson are racing. Sauber Karting Team cooperates with Kart Republic and IAME in hardware. It is this team that would be a team of „three young Polish drivers”, about which we read in the information published by RMF FM.
