Robert Kubica appears to be headed towards a third driver role for 2020 at Racing Point.

Robert Kubica appears to be headed towards a third driver role for 2020 at Racing Point.

Earlier, with the Pole looking likely to combine an F1 role with a DTM race seat with BMW, it appeared that Haas would be his 2020 destination.

But Poland's claims that Racing Point owner Lawrence Stroll is a big Kubica fan.

"He doesn't let failure bring him down," billionaire Stroll said.

"He falls but gets up. In sports and in life, I have not seen someone who is so determined, such a fighter."

However, Kubica - who has lost his seat at Williams - told the Polish broadcaster TVP that his horror rallying crash of 2011 affected him badly.

"There were a few nights where I cried," the 35-year-old said. "20 years of passion and work changed in one second.

"I had to mentally as well as physically rehabilitate myself. The turning point was when I did not think about how to do something, but I was glad that I could do it at all."

For instance, he says something as simple as tying his shoes is no longer easy.

"As a rule, I am lazy and do not tie them at all, but if I did it like before the accident, it would not be possible," said Kubica.

"After some time, the mind and body find a new way, and it is the final result that is important."
