Robert Kubica will drive for Williams in 2019

London, November 22: Robert Kubica will make a long-awaited return to the Formula One grid after being named as a Williams driver for the 2019 season.

It's one of the biggest achievements of my life - Kubica on F1 return

Kubica has not raced in Formula One since 2010, his career in the sport interrupted by life-altering injuries he suffered in a rally crash.

He had been tested for a seat at Williams and Renault prior to the 2018 season but was not considered by the French team, while Sergey Sirotkin was preferred by the British outfit.

The Pole landed the role of reserve driver with Williams but has now been promoted to a race seat alongside F1 rookie George Russell.

Kubica achieved 12 podium finishes across spells with Sauber and Renault prior to his injury.
