Eight years after sustaining serious injuries in a rallying crash - Kubica will return to the F1 grid with Williams in 2019 replacing current driver Sergey Sirotkin.
After the announcement was made Robert came out and said "It has been a challenging journey to get back to the Formula 1 grid, but what seemed almost impossible is now beginning to feel possible, as I am excited to be able to say that I will be on the Formula 1 grid in 2019"
