It could be DTM..Note the "in Germany" part..

 

I'd like him racing, though I hope he will also continue rallying.

Well...the interview was in Germany and he was asked about come back "here" (so to Germany) in WRC car next year.

Hence the answer :)

That is certainly not a "massive accident" like Autosport have made it out to be. I'm glad the cows are ok, though.

The guy in orange running away with the cows had a close shave, though :eek:

Kubica says that:
 
To be honest I want somewhere in Germany to race nextyear. That means I will be back in Circuit (racing). But if not, I will be in WRC car.
 
Sounds like he is going for touring car with Citroen OR WRC.

He said he hopes to be somewhere else, not want to. That's pretty important in this case. If he would like to race touring cars then I guess citroen wouldn't waste a second before they put deal in front of him. We also know he tested DTM and was mighty impressive so given this finding a car wouldn't be a problem as well. All in all racing in those series is totally up to him. Word "hope" just don't fit here. You can hope when somethig is not for you to decide or you don't know yet if you'll be able to do somethig. For instance compete in F1 without fully recovered hand.

Nice, have fun! I planned to attend, but it didn't work out. Unless something miraculously changes and I'll make a last minute trip.

 

You live in Poland?

 

Testing crash, in better quality:

Two videos from testing, on first you can see Robert pushing as hell and second is more showy-like thing, but fking great.

Those stages look super fast but in the same time bumpy as hell.

He's really good, but at the same time - when I see someone who is totally fearless (ala Travis Pastrana) I have to think "how much of that is responsible for his speed?". 

 

I like that MS admittedly wasn't fearless, or Hamilton, Alonso, etc. - it's definitely their driving talent that keeps them all the way out to the limit.   Kubica going over the limit with impunity, particularly after THE accident - I dunno.  There is bravery, and there is just a complete lack of fear, and I'm not sure they're the same thing.

 

Kimi is similar I think - I remember seeing him go flat over Raidillon into a cloud of smoke after someone had an off - not knowing if the car had rolled back on the track, or what was in that cloud.  Which falls into the "Travis Pastrana crazy" category.  The technically insane crazy person going fast is maybe different than the sane person with heightened skill.

In the mean time, Robert won the Rallye Vosgien. He may also start in Rally Sanremo or Rallye du Valais.

From what he says, WRC is what he wants - question whether he will get an offer good enough.
