How Kubica helped Mercedes

Very interesting news about Robert Kubica`s role as a Mercedes simulator test driver - Pole was working very hard to help German team in second half of a season.

After Niki Lauda had revealed, that Robert Kubica is helping Mercedes in the simulator in Brackley, many of us was surprised. Surprised were also Mercedes engineers when Toto Wolff asked them to prepare simulator test for Robert Kubica. Some of them wasn`t really happy because of that.

During the first day of test, Kubica was driving for almost 8 hours without a break and then he suggested some car modifications. After them he managed to beat his time on the same circuit by about 0,3 sec. Earlier engineers thought that they reached limits on this circuit.

After that they wanted more help from Kubica and Pole was helping Mercedes especially during Grand Prix weekends - at night from Friday to Saturday.
