Kubica on the market states manager

Robert Kubica's manager Daniel Morelli says the Polish driver is now on the market for the 2010 F1 season following BMW's decision to quit the sport at the end of the season.

In a hastily-convened press conference, BMW revealed it will become the second major manufacturer to quit the sport in short succession as part of a 'strategic realignment' of its motorsport programmes.

Due to the quick nature of the announcement, there has yet to be any confirmation over whether or not BMW will look to sell the team or close the doors, which raises questions over the future of both Kubica and team-mate Nick Heidfeld.

Heidfeld has already expressed a desire to remain on the grid, and Morelli said that Kubica was also on the market for a drive despite the fact he had been committed to BMW until the end of 2010.

“There was no sign inside the team that something like this could happen,” Morelli was quoted by Gazzetta dello Sport. “Robert was under contract until the end of 2010, but now he's officially on the market.”

Ha, ha. Winner of today's "State the Obvious" competition is Robert Kubica's manager. I see over on Autosport Nico Rosberg has been saying nice things about Williams. Mmmm, I wonder why?

I wonder why so many of you dumb British dislike the guy so much? Is it because, unlike your drivers, he had to actually work his way to get to F1, or because he's faster than your pampered celebrity drivers? Get some grip. If he had Hamilton's car last season, he would have WDC by September (or so). Have a good day.
