As the teams began to pack their bags after the Spanish Grand Prix last weekend, Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN and their reserve driver Robert Kubica kept theirs very much open as they completed a two-day test after the grand prix.

Polish driver Robert Kubica completed a two day test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, testing the new 18-inch Pirelli tyres over both days. Kubica who also drove in free practice one at the Spanish Grand Prix completed two-hundred-forty laps, equivalent to over three and a half races of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Overall Kubica is happy with how the test went and believes it was a success, however mentioning just how demanding it was after very little time behind the wheel of the Alfa Romeo this year.

“It’s been two very busy but productive days. It’s always interesting to discover new features of the car, especially when it’s something as important as the tyres. These are our team’s first steps with the new 18-inch tyres so there is a lot to learn. We covered lots of laps, lots of miles and got a lot of data that will keep everyone busy.”

“It’s been a tough two days: I hadn’t been in the car for a while before last Friday and to run for two days on such a demanding track was a challenge, but one we happily completed with success.”
