Mercedes GP Offer Robert Kubica 3-Year Deal

Ferrari may have closed the doors for a potential Robert Kubica move to Maranello in the upcoming 2 years, but that isn't to mean the Pole will necessarily remain at Renault for the 2011 season. Although his team principal Eric Boullier admitted his excitement that all the big teams have already secured their lineups for the 2011 season – meaning Renault will have a bigger chance of inking an extension with Kubica, Mercedes GP doesn't seem too convinced about that.

According to an Italian website, a member of the Mercedes GP staff has allegedly contacted Robert Kubica for a potential deal with the Brackley based team starting 2011. As reported by, the 25-year old was offered the possibility of signing a 3-year deal with the German manufacturer, with the option for another two seasons.

As you all know, both Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher have been signed by Ross Brawn's team for a period of 3 years. Yet, it seems that Kubica would replace the 7-time world champion should he decide to sign that deal.

The report comes despite several comments made by Schumacher and his team regarding his future at Brackley. Although his performances this year have been anything but impressive, the 41-year old champion insisted that he's committed to his current deal and wants to make it through his final year of contract.

On the same page was the team's chief executive Nick Fry, who said that he's personally very impressed with Schumacher this season and the team is not looking for replacements for the time being.

From inside the team we see things in a totally different perspective. We're very comfortable with Michael's performance and I can't see any reason why he won't come good,” said Fry.
