Rokit Williams Racing’s Robert Kubica has announced he will leave the Grove based outfit at the end of the season.

The Pole who returned to Formula One at the start of the 2019 season alongside rookie George Russell made the announcement at a press conference on Thursday ahead of Sunday’s Singapore night race.

Rokit Williams Racing’s Deputy Team Principal Claire Williams said:

I would like to thank Robert for his hard work and respect his decision to leave the team at the end of the 2019 season. Robert has been an important member of the team in both his role as Reserve & Development Driver, and subsequently as one of our Race Drivers in 2019. We thank him for his continued efforts throughout what has been a challenging couple of seasons and wish him well in his future endeavours.”

Robert Kubica said:

I would like to thank the team for the last two years and for helping make my comeback to the Formula One grid possible. I have enjoyed my time with ROKiT Williams Racing, both as Reserve & Development Driver and as a Race Driver this year, but I feel that the time is now right for me to move on to the next chapter in my career.”

The news comes as reports have emerged linking Kubica to a drive in the DTM for 2020.
