It's the 10 September 2006, and Robert Kubica has just become the first Polish driver to lead a Grand Prix as well as the first Pole to finish on the podium. A remarkable achievement considering it was only his third race start.
Kubica, from Krakow in Poland, was drafted into the BMW Sauber team as a replacement for Jacques Villeneuve after the 1997 world champion parted with the German-Swiss outfit. Kubica had been working as test and reserve driver for the first part of the season making him the ideal candidate to take over the vacant race seat. An impressive debut part-season led to his retention for 2007, a season where Kubica was to constantly finish in points scoring positions resulting in a sixth place finish in the championship.

Volkswagen may have described 2013 as 'a learning year' for their new factory effort, but few were surprised to see Sebastien Ogier finish second in the season opening Monte Carlo Rally last weekend, the German manufacturer's first event as a full factory World Rally Championship team.
