Robert Kubica will leave the Williams Formula 1 team at the end of the season.

The Pole has scored the Grove-based team's only point of a difficult campaign, but has decided to step down.

Kubica completed one of sport's finest comebacks by landing a seat on the F1 grid eight years after he was nearly killed in a rally crash.

But the 34-year-old has been propping up the field in an under-competitive Williams.

“I would like to thank the team for the last two years and for helping make my comeback to the Formula 1 grid possible," he said.

"I have enjoyed my time with Williams, but I feel that the time is now right for me to move on to the next chapter in my career.”

Claire Williams, deputy team principal of Williams added: “I would like to thank Robert for his hard work and respect his decision to leave the team at the end of the 2019 season.

"Robert has been an important member of the team and we thank him for his continued efforts throughout what has been a challenging couple of seasons and wish him well in his future endeavours.”
