Kubica to stay with Renault

9:14 am on 5 January 2010

The Polish motor racing driver Robert Kubica is set to remain with the Renault Formula One team.

Kubica only joined the team in October but Renault's decision to sell a significant stake to a Luxembourg investment group raised doubts about his future.

Kubica raced for BMW-Sauber last season and signed for Renault after BMW decided to withdraw from the sport but it is likely he had an escape clause in his contract which covered a change of team ownership.
