Despite saying that his ambition is to get back onto the Formula 1 grid on a full-time basis, Robert Kubica has asked his fans not to get too excited yet, knowing there is a lot he still needs to do in order to be able to fulfil this ambition.

Kubica completed 115-laps of the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia in a 2012 Lotus E20 two weeks ago, but admits that even though his goal is to return to the top level single-seater category, it is too early to say whether or not it can be done, although he believes his chances are better now than they were.

“I know that the imaginations and expectations of fans and motorsport people were boosted after this test but there is no point in getting overexcited,” said Kubica to Polish publication Eleven Sports.

“Time will tell. A lot has happened in my life over the past six years, a lot has changed in me.

“I will work to achieve the goal I set for myself and to achieve what I think is within my reach. It is too early to say what it is and whether it will happen. I will prepare myself for the highest goals.

“I think that two years ago people gave me quite slim chances to return to driving a Formula 1 car but I came back and did it, I think, in style.”
