WRC » Kubica: As a small team impossible to beat factories


Cobalt: So many problems with the car and tyres this year. Still to be expected that the first year with his own team would be tough. The team kept changing as well. Next year? RK can't afford full WRC season anyway so he met as well try DTM. There is a clash of four dates, I think. And back to Michelins? Would Citroen be better than Ford (which seems to be very delicate). I hope RK will do some WRC next year, he is nearly there... and no he is not rolling or crashing any more.
DTM would be a better use of his talents imo.

That's an interesting comment. I was wondering what their intentions are as they've hardly developed the car this year. WTCC is boring but the exposure they get from rallying is poor. Red Bull have done a crap jo
