Robert Kubica gets new WRC Rally GB co-driver

Robert Kubica WRC 2013

Robert Kubica has changed his co-driver for next week's Rally GB - his first event in a factory World Rally Car.

Maciek Baran, who has co-driven the Pole throughout his debut season in WRC 2, will be replaced by Michele Ferrara in Wales.

Kubica and Ferrara have not competed together previously, but the former Canadian Grand Prix winner is no stranger to Italian co-drivers having competed previously with Emanuele Inglesi and Giuliano Manfredi. Kubica speaks Italian fluently.

Kubica and Baran were crowned WRC 2 champions in Spain last month following a successful season in a Citroen DS3 RRC.

For Rally GB, Kubica steps up to the Abu Dhabi Citroen team, where he drives Khalid Al-Qassimi's DS3 WRC.

The Pole is scheduled to test the car for the first time in Wales on Monday, which will represent the first time he listens to pace notes in Italian for more than a year.
