Robert Kubica returns to his Formula 1 test since 2011

Kubica received a big blow in 2011 after a rallying crash, but it is good news that he is back as he completed his first Formula 1 test covering 115 laps of the Valencia circuit in Renault colours. The car used had the same chassis Kimi Raikkonen used to earn a victory in the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Kubica had initially returned to competition, winning the 2013 title in the World Rally Championship and the 2014 European Rally Championship season-opener. But it didn’t work out that well which prompted him for circuit racing. He was due to contest for the World Endurance Championship, but he pulled out on the eve of the opening round. Before this F1 test, he participated in GP3, Formula E and LMP2 machinery. He is expected to have further test outings with Renault.

 

Larson cruises to third NASCAR Xfinity win of the season at Dover

Kyle Larson has been in sensational form this season as he registered his third win of the season at the Dover International Speedway. That is the most number of wins he registered in a single season. Larson dominated much of the race as he moved back into the lead the final time with just 54 laps remaining out of the 200. Larson had a mixed run at Dover and to win it was special for him. The $100,000 “Dash 4 Cash” bonus of the season was won by William Byron who finished sixth in the race. It was the eighth series win of Larson’s career who beat Ryan Blaney to land first at Rover. The third position was taken by Daniel Suarez, fourth by Cole Custer and the fifth by Ryan Reed.
