Kubica Happier with Renault than with BMW

Robert Kubica admitted that a good reason why he has delivered the results he did for Renault in the first 3 races of the season is because he feels very happy within the Enstone organization. The fact that he's part of a fresh start for the French manufacturer and that all the members of the team look at him as a leading driver makes him feel important, and therefore make him become more committed to the Renault cause in F1.

Last year, following BMW's poor development work on their F1 single-seater – his former team – the Pole was obviously not happy with how the Swiss/German team conducted their “business” in the series, culminating with their F1 quit announcement by mid-season.

It's no secret that at times in past years I didn't feel as looked after as I would have liked. I think that [the] feeling around you, the faith of the people you work with, is important in any activity,” reckoned the Polish driver.

Today I feel that team has confidence in me, they accommodate me, and this allows me not to feel the fatigue of a workload that is even bigger than in previous seasons. I enjoy myself more, even though the car is not yet what we dream to have,” added the former BMW racer.

Kubica & Renault's seem like a great marriage nowadays, with team boss Eric Boullier praising (not once) the Pole's great commitment to car development this year. Additionally, Kubica carried his team on his shoulders throughout the first 3 races of the season, scoring a runner-up finish in Australia and scoring all of Renault's points in 2010.

His 30 points this season not only cleared the path for Renault for 5th place – ahead of Force India Mercedes – but also backed hopes that the French team could surpass Mercedes GP in the overall classification by the end of the season.
