Robert Kubica has questioned whether or not the BMW Sauber F1 team are committed to helping him challenge for the drivers' title this season.

Kubica has had a remarkable year and in addition to taking his - and the team's - maiden F1 win in Canada, he has scored points in every single race, bar two.

That consistency has left him third in the drivers' championship and while he is undoubtedly an outside bet, he is only 18 points behind Lewis Hamilton with five still races to go and 50 points up for grabs.

Speaking ahead of the 14th round in the championship, the Pole was quick to point out that Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen took the title last year, despite being 17 points behind, with only two races left.

"Looking at what happened last season, where Kimi had a huge gap with two races to go and he won the championship, you have to try your best and that's what I am trying to do," Kubica told Reuters.

"From my point of view it is very clear. I am a racing driver and I am fighting to do my best, and when I am doing my best I am doing it for myself and for the team.

"It is clear that if I score eight points they go to the team and to my account, but maybe the priority of late of the team has been a bit different from myself.

"That is why you get this feeling - and to be honest I also get this feeling a bit, that maybe I am the only stupid one or crazy one who is thinking about fighting for the championship this season.

"While there is the chance I have to go for it and I hope the team is doing the same. I believe they are trying," he summed-up.
