Williams F1 to lose PKN Orlen after Robert Kubica exit

"It was my decision, so of course I know there are some consequences which then Orlen follows my decision but this is a completely different topic", Kubica said of his sponsor's influence in his Williams exit.

"To come back, to achieve what I have managed to go through, after what happened, and still managed to race".

Lewis Hamilton hailed Robert Kubica among the finest drivers he has ever raced against after the Pole announced his brief return to Formula One will conclude at the end of the year.

Daniel Obajtek, chief executive and president of the PKN Orlen management board said: "PKN Orlen's presence in Formula One has produced tangible benefits for our image and business".

"I have to first of all do what will bring me back a bit of joy of racing".

One early theory is that Kubica could become a Racing Point reserve driver, and at the same time switch to the German touring vehicle series DTM to race.

"Robert is one of the most talented drivers I've competed against".

Despite Hamilton's plea, Kubica has next to no chance of securing a seat for 2020. Not a lot of people could make it through those circumstances, make it back into the sport, and deliver against others who have not been in the same situation.

In fact, I met with Kevin just two weeks ago when Quinn Building Products hosted our Health and Safety Committee in Derrylin. He was later employed as a consultant at his former companies but left that role in 2016.

"I think it's been great to have him back", he said.

French driver Romain Grosjean said the Pole had been an inspiration.

"It has been the biggest achievement of my life to come back to F1". I have revisited this for the last two years.

Latifi, who is second in the F2 championship, has put in three practice appearances for Williams.

The German had been strongly linked with a move to Haas next year but the US -owned team is sticking with its lineup of Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen.

Kubica's deal to race for Williams this year ended an absence stretching back to the 2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, following the horrific rally crash in early 2011 that partially severed his right arm.

"At present, together with Robert we are considering various scenarios for the next season to choose the one most favourable to both parties".

Although Kubica self-effacingly suggested "we can skip it" when, ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix, Motorsport.com asked his fellow FIA press conference attendees for their views on Kubica's return to F1, Hamilton and Grosjean spoke in glowing terms.
