F1 » Renault: If we give Kubica just half a title chance, he'll win it


Renault F1 technical director James Allison argues that Robert Kubica is so good that should the team give him a car that's 'even half-capable' of claiming the crown, the Pole will achieve it

I think the point is Kubica can make the difference. i.e give him this years mclaren or Ferrari and he'd probably be leading the championship. Give him a red bull and we would all be very, very bored.
I reckon he is the best out there, but until he gets a crack at winning races every week we will never really know.

True Robert in a top car would for sure have a good chance. But half the car?? Renault loses Bell, talks up Kimi and then comes out with this? I think this team is really really tickled with themselves. Either that or it's good PR work.

I have to agree with Rob with respect to half the car. However, if Robert had let's say a car that would be top 3 or 4 he would have a shot a WDC this year. That said I don't think Renault is able to provide him with the car that's why he needs to to one of the top teams to get his chance even if it's Ferrari.

Yeah right! The guy has shown nothing with that Renault. A far better Renault than in 08-09, but still not many podiums no win either..

He's a great rider, though

@fiddy cent - It seems to me that Kubica will have some barn stormer races and then fall off the radar for no apparent reason. We saw this at the end of 2008. In 2009 I was unimpressed by his performance. Heidfeld looked better than Kubica in the same car.
