Kubica: No problems in DTM test

Robert Kubica reports no problems after his day running in a Mercedes DTM car in Valencia
Robert Kubica said his run in a Mercedes DTM machine has passed with 'no problems whatsoever' after completing a day of running behind the wheel in Valencia.

The day-long test gave Kubica the chance to run in a car with downforce for the first time since he was involved in his rallying accident nearly two years ago.

In total, Kubica was able to get more 450km under his belt in mixed weather conditions, with the 28-year-old reporting no physical issues at the end of the day.

"My first day of testing in a DTM car was great fun and I learned a lot about the series and the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé,” he said. “The first installation lap was in the dry, then a few heavy showers of rain came down and we had to wait for the track to dry out. All in all, it was a good experience, getting to know the car in different weather conditions.

“I was able to get to grips with the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé and felt very comfortable in the car, even though after my long break it meant adjusting to the high downforce that a state-of-the art DTM race car produces. I'm very pleased with my performance on this first day of DTM testing and had no problems whatsoever in the car."
