BMW Sauber F1 Team driver Robert Kubica starts a Formula One Grand Prix for the first time as leader of the World Championship. However, the young Pole goes into the race in Magny-Cours with the same goals.
After claiming victory at the Canadian Grand Prix, and taking the lead in the World Championship, Robert is certain to attract a lot of interest in Magny-Cours. Despite this, however, the Polish BMW Sauber F1 Team driver says the race in France is nothing out of the ordinary.
"It's an interesting track because it has all kinds of corners - high-speed, low-speed, high-speed chicanes, a hairpin and heavy braking," are how Kubica characterises the "Circuit de Nevers", the venue for the forthcoming French Grand Prix: "So I'm looking forward to the race and I hope that I can do as well as possible here, as I have done in most of the Grands Prix since the beginning of the season."
After his great success in Montreal, Robert's objectives remain unchanged: "I hope we will once again have made some improvements to the car, which will help us to close the gap to Ferrari and McLaren. My goal is to score as many points as possible and to still be in a strong position after the race."
However, the BMW Sauber F1 Team driver can take particular pleasure from the French Grand Prix. "For many people Magny-Cours is a boring place, but I like the track quite a lot," says Robert. "This is the place where I came back last year after my accident."Source BMW Sauber
