Kubica Ferrari links gather pace

Robert Kubica continues to be linked with Felipe Massa's Ferrari seat, despite both having contracts for next year
Robert Kubica has again been linked with a more away from Renault at the end of the current F1 season, despite signing a two-year contract extension with the team back in July.

After an impressive start to his first season in Renault colours, Kubica was linked with a possible move away from the team prior to signing his new contract, with Ferrari mentioned as one possible option.

With Felipe Massa having signed his own contract extension prior to Kubica, it appeared that a move to Ferrari would have to wait, with Kubica having said in the past that he is keen to drive for the Scuderia at some point during his career.

However, according to Motorsport Aktuell, Kubica could get his wish of appearing in Ferrari red sooner rather than later with the Swiss publication reporting that Massa could be moved away from Ferrari at the end of the year in order for the team to make a move for Kubica.

Rather than a straight swap however, the report suggests that Massa would head to Sauber as partner to Kamui Kobayashi – thus keeping a link to Ferrari through Sauber's engine deal.

While he admits to reading the rumours, Kubica insisted he was only focusing on Renault although he did add once again that he would like to drive for Ferrari in the future.

"In karting, Formula Renault and F3, I've always been with Italian teams and I even lived for more than a year near Monza,” he said. “Ferrari is a team unlike any other. The emotion and the history is unique. I think every driver would like to drive for Ferrari.

"Of course I read all the rumours, but in the end the only thing is winning. We are all here because we want to win and you need the best car for that. Currently I'm at Renault and so I am focused on this team and on improving together. In 2011 we want to fight for the world title. We'll see what happens next.”

There is clearly only room for one number 1 driver in the Ferrari team & we all know who that is. Why on earth would Kubica want to go there just to play second-fiddle to Alonso just like Massa is having to do now!
