Robert Kubica scores first DTM podium:

Alfa Romeo F1 reserve and ART BMW driver, Kubica, registered his first-ever podium in DTM in Race 2 at Zolder on Sunday after finishing third. The Polish racer has had a difficult campaign in the touring car championship in a privately run outfit.

In the eight rounds so far, Kubica has only one points finish at Assen before his podium at Zolder. He started 10th and immediately made progress to be sixth in Race 2, taking advantage of mishaps from others. He went long in his first stint and had track position.

Even though he joined outside the Top 3 after his pit stop, Kubica made up the places to eventually finish third – the best of BMW drivers’. The German manufacturer hasn’t had the season they would have hoped for against Audi, with just the two wins.

“This is a great moment for the entire ART Grand Prix Team after a difficult season,” said Kubica. “We had a lot to learn and needed to improve in many areas. Everything worked really well. We managed to steer clear of all the problems and took our chances.

“We had really good pace in the decisive stages of the race. The tyres were an important factor today, so I didn’t push too hard after my pit stop and tried to keep them alive. I was able to build up a lead over the cars behind me and get home in third place.”
