Robert Kubica says he's keen to continue fighting in the World Rally Championship after a season of 'progress' but feels he is nearing the maximum his RK World Rally Team can produce.
The former F1 star notched up his third points finish of the season with eighth place at Wales Rally GB to claim 12th in the overall WRC championship but feels a number of technical issues hampered his progress both in North Wales and over the course of the season.
“The only positive thing is that we managed to get to the finish and the pace was good,” Kubica said in Wales. “On the last one the rear tyres were gone and it was oversteering so much. I have made some good progress this year and I would like to continue. I had a lot of technical problems through the season.”
After completing his third consecutive season in rallying's premier class, the Polish driver says it has been another season of improvements – despite missing Rally Argentina after his RK WRT needed restructuring – but feels it is 'impossible' to make any further progress.
“I would like to do more next year because I feel I improved this season,” he said. “Okay, not good results in the second half of the year but we've had a lot of technical problems. I think in our position as a small team, it is impossible to beat the factory guys.”
