Motorsports Mondial with Nasir Hameed includes special interview…

Long time F1weekly listener Burak Sardag.

Robert Kubica signs on with Renault F1 through 2012

“It was a straightforward decision for me to continue with a team where I feel at home, What’s important for me is to be in the right atmosphere, with a good group of people, where everybody is pulling in the same direction. This is what we have tried to build from the beginning of my time with Renault.

I think we have already achieved a lot together, and I believe that with plenty of effort, time and the right approach, we can move even further forward. That is certainly our target, so we will keep working hard and pushing on every front, not just for the rest of this season but also for next year when there are more big rule changes on the way. I am really looking forward to the challenge.
