The Polish driver returns to a kart track, this time as a mechanic and coach
Robert Kubica, F1 driver at BMW and Renault between 2006 and 2010, currently the third driver for the Williams F1 team, came back on a kart track in Lonato. Assisted by the team Rope Motorsport, the Polish champion, excellent kartist at the beginning of his career and remained passionate about this sport, this time he did not wear a helmet and a suit, but he dropped in the role of “coach” dispensing advices to the young drivers of the team.
Together with them, at South Garda Karting, there was also the SkySport F1 journalist Mara Sangiorgio, who had already ventured into this discipline with great enthusiasm. With her, the former councilor of the Lombardy Region, always sensitive to motorsport, the attorney Carolina Toia. Kubica has not spared opinions and advices, showing his great knowledge of karting and the willingness of a real champion, from which all the drivers on the track have obtained valuable information.
At the end of the day, beyond the fatigue of a long test session on the track, the smiles on everyone’s faces showed unequivocally the great success of the initiative, as well as confirming once more the value of the kart being an ideal way to the preparation and growth of pilots, both as a tool for fun and sharing.
