Kubica Starts Work At Renault Factory Ahead Of 2010 Season

Robert Kubica today visited the Renault factory at Enstone to get started on his work with the R30 car ahead of the 2010 season kick off test in Valencia.

The popular Polish driver had a seat fitting session in a mock-up R30 car, and took a tour of the factory which has changed a lot in recent years.

I had been to the factory before when I tested for the team a few years ago, but it was great to return and see how much has changed,” said Kubica.

“The site is bigger now and there are more facilities such as the CFD centre, which is very impressive and will play a big role in the development of our car this year.

“When you walk around the factory there is a great atmosphere and everybody seems motivated and up for the fight – just like me!”

“We’ve only done the first stage in a mock-up chassis as the first R30 isn’t ready yet,” he said. “So we checked the dimensions and took measurements to make sure I was comfortable in the car. There are some small changes to be made, but no major issues.

“Later this month I’ll go back to Enstone to try out the proper chassis and to have my seat made so that we are ready for the first test in Valencia.”
