will test with the LMP1 team next week in Spain, and could race in the World Endurance Championship this year.

 

Kubica will attend a three-day test at the Aragon circuit in the Mecachrome-powered Ginetta G60-LT-P1, starting on Monday. 

 

Last year, Kubica looked like the favourite to take the second seat at Williams, but ultimately lost out to Sergey Sirotkin. A race seat at Manor however would keep the Polish driver race fit should he be called upon to sit in for either Sirotkin or Lance Stroll.

 

Manor will enter two cars in the LMP1 division of the 2018/19 season under the CEFC TRSM Racing banner, with Oliver Rowland and Charlie Robertson also confirmed at the Aragon test.

 

The WEC’s decision to grant Fuji a change of date to avoid a clash with F1 means Kubica could race in every WEC round races this season without affecting his Williams creserve driver commitments.

 

In 2017, Kubica had been due to contest the WEC campaign for the ByKolles squad and appeared – albeit didn’t drive – in the pre-season Prologue test for the team.
