When inquired about dealing with BMW Sauber in 2006-2009, Robert confesses was an uncomfortable duration.
” On the one hand, I will continue to thank them quite for providing me a possibility, they put me in the cars and truck in the middle of the 2006 season. At the exact same time, we missed out on a lot of possibilities in this duration. To this day, when I satisfy somebody from that duration, I hear comparable things,” confesses Robert.
In this occasion he speaks about the parts he checked simply 2 days after winning the Canadian Grand Prix in2008 They had a huge benefit on the lap, however due to the fact that there was just one set of them, they didn’t provide it to him. any of the motorists, due to the fact that the concern is that “the cars were great”.
” Last year I fulfilled my mechanic of that year and he informed me that if we utilized the part I checked at Jerez and understand just how much efficiency it offers us, we would win more races. I looked at the old category, time trial results, compared to the outcomes and category at the end of the season and I understand how lots of possibilities we missed out on. I still do not comprehend. I understand what their point of view was, however I can’t get it since for me it’s constantly had to do with enhancing efficiency. I am not stating that we have actually lost the champion, it can not be stated. With a little effort, and possibly even without it, due to the fact that it was enough to keep one location, we would have combated for the champion in the last race,” states Kubica.
BMW’s backwards departure from Formula 1 was likewise outstanding.
” I discovered a number of hours prior to journalism release. It was a shock. Typically there is talk in the paddock, reports flow about something. There was absolutely nothing. On the one hand, I was dissatisfied, however on the other hand, I believed it offered me a possibility to evaluate the group another. After the 2008 season, I was dissatisfied by numerous things and wished to attempt to deal with somebody else. I was an extremely highly regarded driver at that time and I understood I would get the chance. They took place rapidly, “keeps in mind Robert.
Renault did not dissatisfy. The cooperation with the Enstone group was at a level ideal for Pole.
” It was 100 times much better. Whatever was concentrated on efficiency. For me, it was the shift from business management to the real execution of the law. And this conversation, the dispute. I just recently had a conference with my engineer who asked me if I keep in mind Australia2010 I didn’t however it advised me. I existed, Eric Boullier, Simon Rennie, Alan Permane, James Allison, Bob Bell. It was a really heated argument. I remember what we discussed, however I’ll keep it to myself. It was really extreme: 40 minutes of heated argument. When we opened the door it was over, absolutely nothing took place– a pure view on efficiency. It was fantastic to me, “Kubica stated.
He likewise pointed out the very first tests prior to the 2010 season with Renault in Valencia, which did not work out. The 2nd time, he recommended altering the settings– entirely various. After their intro, the group had a couple of tenths of a 2nd to clash, and Robert’s engineer did not comprehend why they remained in such a rush.
Kubica likewise exposed that Renault concealed from him the reality of signing an agreement with Genii Capital and offering the group.
” And I signed an agreement with Renault– an automobile maker– not a business owner who desires an F1 group. I felt extremely sorry for them due to the fact that they concealed it for a very long time, so long that I might not benefit from the exit stipulation. When I learnt formally, the only location left for the season 2011 was Toro Rosso,” states Robert. For this factor, his very first discussion with Gerard Lopez, the one in charge of Genii, was “extremely odd”.
At the end of the discussion, Pole was inquired about his intense competitor from Formula 1.

Fernando was at the peak of his character at that time, in my “old” days in F1. When Lewis signed up with F1, he had no experience. I appreciate all the chauffeurs I have actually raced versus. The requirement is really high and hard to mark, however if I needed to select one it would be Fernando.
