Having been sidelined from Formula 1 since his horrific rally crash in February 2011, the Pole has been working hard to return to motorsport, which involved participating and even winning minor rallies.
A test with the Mercedes DTM team suggested that 28-year-old could return to the competitive racing scene until the German manufacturer signalled its end after it announced its driver line-up for this season’s touring car series.
Current McLaren tester Gary Paffett and former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher – now in his sixth DTM season – were among the six named as Mercedes drivers this season.

Kubica’s future remains uncertain.
