The former F1 driver Robert Kubica has completed 114 laps of the Valencia circuit in a Mercedes touring car in the most demanding test so far of his return from a near-fatal rally accident two years ago.
The 28-year-old Pole, who has not competed in Formula One since he was at Renault in the 2010 season, says he's pleased with his performance and that he felt comfortable.
Kubica, a grand prix winner who suffered severe arm and hand injuries in February 2011 when he crashed while competing in a minor rally in Italy, covered 456.5 km in changeable conditions at the Ricardo Tormo circuit.
The Pole, who competed in some minor rallies last year as part of his rehabilitation, said before the test that he was still hoping for a return to Formula One eventually. Kubica gets plenty of laps in touring car
