When it was announced in November that he would remain with Alfa Romeo as a backup, Robert Kubica, one of Hinwil’s regular stable drivers, was ready to test himself in winter Formula 1 testing.

Although F1 test dates have long been on the calendar, they are only officially approved now. The first round of the Winter Test will take place from February 23-25 ​​in Barcelona. The bad news for fans is that it won’t be broadcast live on Formula One as it has in recent years.

Although the teams requested that the tests be held in Barcelona for five days, in the end it was decided that the test should be held for only three days.

The F1 stake will then move to Bahrain, where the next round of testing will be March 10-12. The games will already be broadcast from the Sakhir circuit on the official channel of Queen of Motorsports, giving fans an insight into the look and feel of the new machines.

Will Robert Kubica appear on the circuit in Barcelona and Bahrain? It all depends on the management of Alfa Romeo. With a total of six days of driving, each session is extremely important for full-time drivers Valtteri Bottas and Guanyu Zhou. Because of the technical revolution, F1 cars in the 2022 season are completely different from previous designs. For this reason, Finns and Chinese should spend as much time as possible behind the wheel.

Regulatory changes in F1 are also a problem for Kubic as a reserve driver. The 37-year-old may have to seize the car from a friend at any time in the event of an infection or a positive test for the presence of the coronavirus. So, it looks like the Pole will finally get at least half a day on the track.
