There was new hope for the inaugural Korean Grand Prix this week as Renault driver Robert Kubica agreed to help out with the track’s behind-schedule building work.
‘Robert heard rumours that the Korean track might not be finished on time and without thinking he chucked a bag of tools in his R30, strapped a ladder to the top, and headed off to Yeongam’. said a spokesman.
‘Because he comes from Poland, Robert is used to delivering high quality building work on schedule and at a reasonable price,’ our mole continued. ‘In fact, he’s a little bit offended they didn’t ask him to quote for the whole job in the first place’.
Sources say Kubica suffered a slight setback upon arriving in Korea when he realised that Vitaly Petrov still has his best spirit level after borrowing it for that kitchen re-build in Kidlington.
Nonetheless, Renault insist that the Polish driver will have finished his work on the Yeongam track before the German race in 10 days time and will once again be available for re-tiling, plumbing and other building works in the Enstone area, no job too big or too small.
