Kubica completes FIA extraction test

Robert Kubica has successfully completed the FIA’s mandatory extraction test before taking part in the post-Hungary test tomorrow.


Many believed that it would be difficult for the Pole to complete the test given his limited mobility after a rally crash in 2011.

However, the FIA said that he had passed the test which went smoothly.

The test itself requires the driver to get himself out of the car, whilst wearing full race gear, helmet and fully belted, in 5 seconds. As well as replacing the steering wheel within 10 seconds. (Article 13.1.4 of the FIA’s F1 regulations).

Wednesday will be Kubica’s first drive in a 2017 car after having completed 2 tests in a 2012 Lotus car at Barcelona and Paul Ricard.
