A statement from Kubicaâ€™s management team read: â€œRobert and Maciek know all thirteen World Championship rounds. However, they approach this challenge with humility, aiming for consistency and gaining further experience â€“ which will be crucial to confirm their abilities, already shown in their first full season in the most demanding rallies in the world.â€
