The speculation of the future of Robert Kubica’s future ended today when he signed a new contract with Renault. Kubica will now be driving for Renault until the end of the 2012 season. Kubica is one of the most consistent F1 drivers only once finishing outside of the top 10 all year.  He is lying sixth in this year’s championship with two podium finishes.

Robert Kubica has ended speculation about his future by signing a contract extension that is set to keep him with Renault until the end of 2012.

Kubica stated: “It was a straightforward decision to continue with a team where I feel at home.”

“What’s important for me is to be in the right atmosphere, with a good group of people, where everybody is pulling in the same direction,” he added.

“This is what we have tried to build from the beginning of my time with Renault.

“I think we have already achieved a lot together, and I believe that with plenty of effort, time and the right approach, we can move even further forward.

“That is certainly our target, so we will keep working hard and pushing on every front, not just for the rest of this season but also for next year when there are more big rule changes on the way.

“I am really looking forward to the challenge.”

Renault team leader, Eric Boullier, was delighted to see Kubica sign the contract.

“We are delighted that Robert will remain with us for the next two seasons and I would like to thank him for the faith he has shown in this team,” stated Boullier.

“There have been many rumours surrounding his future in recent weeks, which were a tribute to how well he has driven this year, and we are very happy to have agreed a multi-year deal.

“Our clear goal is to become title contenders over the next two years. To do so, we need a driver of Robert’s calibre: somebody who is fast, totally committed and doesn’t make mistakes.

“His performances during the first half of the 2010 season were flawless, and we hope to achieve great things together in the future.”
