“I am not thinking of returning [to F1] for now, but it is not a closed chapter for me. It [a return] is now much more likely than it was two years ago,” Kubica said in an interview with the Gazeta Wyborcza daily.
“Perhaps one day my patience will be rewarded,” the driver said, adding: “I will not say anything until it is sure.”
The Polish driver competed for Renault in Formula 1 in 2010, scoring three podiums in his season with the French manufacturer, before an injury sustained in a rallying crash in 2011 forced him to put his F1 career on hold.
In 2017, Kubica will compete in the World Endurance Championship, which includes Le Mans, and will be driving an LMP1 class car, representing the Austrian ByKolles Racing team.
In the interview published on Monday, Kubica told Gazeta Wyborcza that he is in excellent physical shape, and “can’t wait to race again”.
“It’s a new chapter in my career … I have to learn new tricks,” Kubica said.
Kubica has spent the last few years largely focused on rallying, winning the WRC-2 world championships in 2013. (tf/rg)
