Williams has confirmed it has the required replacement parts available to repair Robert Kubica's car for tomorrow's Azerbaijan Grand Prix after his crash in qualifying on Saturday.

Kubica crashed heavily at Turn 8 in the opening stage of qualifying after hitting the inside wall at the apex of the corner, sending his car straight on into the TecPro barrier.

The Pole emerged unharmed from the accident, but the front-end of his Williams FW42 car had sustained a sizeable amount of damage to the front of its car.

The setback came just 24 hours after Williams was forced to replace the chassis on George Russell's car after he ran over a manhole cover in FP1, adding to the mechanics' laborious weekend in Baku.

However, the team has no concerns over a shortage of spares that blighted the early part of the season, confirming that it does have the required parts to repair Kubica's car.

"We are currently working to fix the front end of Robert's car," a Williams spokeswoman confirmed.

"We will replace both front corners, brakes and steering column on his car following the accident, but we have replacement parts available for all of this."

Kubica is set to start the race 19th on Sunday in Baku, gaining one position as a result of Pierre Gasly's penalty on Friday that requires him to start from the pit lane.
