That should bring Kubica’s Qualifying session to the end, with a lot to do during the race, as he would be starting from the back. Williams with their extra slow package have already suffered a lot, and will have to hope for some luck on raceday to get anywhere off the bottom off the grid.
Slight delay now as there’s an @WilliamsRacing car in the wall – not this one though, instead Robert Kubica. Not the most positive weekend for them so far: but at #BakuGP, anything can happen. It’s far from all over. pic.twitter.com/dszlKLXvzQ

Let’s hope Williams can regroup and do something significant on raceday at the Azerbaijan GP.
