Former Polish Formula 1 star Robert Kubica returned to the track on Wednesday for a Renault test session, his second appearance on a F1 track after a crash six years ago.
Kubica completed 74 laps, more than any other driver, at the Hungaroring track, near Budapest, Hungary.
Kubica notched up a time of 1:19.681, finishing seventh. Sebastian Vettel, of Ferrari, was the fastest, with a time of 1:17.124.
Kubica was driving the newest 2017 Renault F1 car.
He was scheduled to drive in another session on Wednesday afternoon.
The Skysports.com website said Kubica’s session “is seen as the final measure as to whether he will be able to make a full return to the sport in 2018.”
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.
