ERC - ‘Crashes part of learning’ for Kubica

Crashing is the only way for Robert Kubica to learn his trade in the ERC, according to his engineer Kevin Struyf.

The Polish hero inflicted substantial damage to his Citroën DS3 RRC when he rolled on SATA Rallye Açores last Friday – less than a month after a crash put him out of Rally Islas Canarias El Corte Inglés.

“We are not disappointed because when the driver arrives in a rally it’s quite normal to make a mistake,” said Struyf.

“It’s impossible to arrive in rally and to make a very good pace without making a mistake. Robert had a very impressive pace. He made seven fastest times and was leading the rally. That is the most important thing to keep in mind. He has to work a little bit to be more constant but it’s all part of the learning.”
