Williams Robert Kubica has revealed that he was offered a test and reserve driver role at Scuderia Ferrari for the 2019 Formula One season but he turned it down because the urge to return to racing in F1 was too great.

The pole who spent last season with Williams as their reserve driver will make his Formula One race return at the Australian Grand Prix on St Patrick’s Day after eight years away from the sport.

Kubica understand that he has a responsibility to do the best job he possibly can to help bring Williams back to the front following a disastrous 2018 season.

Kubica is joined at the Grove based outfit by rookie George Russell.
