Robert Kubica has withdrawn from Rally Argentina to allow him to restructure his RK World Rally team, just days before the event is set to begin.

The former Formula 1 driver says missing the South American rally will help his team improve its performance, operations and organisation for the rest of the season. The team's Ford Fiesta RS WRC car, a number of team personnel and equipment is already out in Argentina but will not contest the event.

"This has been a very difficult decision to take. We had always planned to compete in Rally Argentina and although part of the team, including the car, is already on site, it was necessary to skip this event," Kubica said.

"It is a real challenge to compete in the World Rally Championship and although I won six stages in the first three rounds, we have to be realistic and focus on improving the team in many areas."

Kubica's rally team was formed in January and is run by Italian company A-style. Despite some impressive stage performances in 2015, the Polish driver is yet to score a single championship point after three rounds.

The 30-year-old expects to return to the WRC scene for round five in Portugal next month.

"We plan to come back for the Rally de Portugal with a different structure, which will be systematically fine-tuned," he added.
