Robert Kubica is finding it extremely tough to land an F1 seat for the 2019 season, as Ocon’s future still hangs in the balance, and Williams needs more funding from its drivers in order to guarantee an F1 seat for 2019.
Kubica is presently in a fix with respect to his future as very few seats are available in F1.
According to reports in AMuS, Toro Rosso have already signed Alex Albon, with the driver having already been released by Nissan.
“Alex Albon set to get 2nd Toro Rosso seat in 2019. According to AMuS information he was already released by Nissan.” Tobi Gruner tweeted.

Robert Kubica has admitted that he is doing everything in his power to get an F1 seat for next year, having already spoken to a lot of teams, but a final decision is still pending. However, the Pole has confirmed that the decision will be announced pretty soon.
With the second Toro Rosso seat reportedly sealed, Kubica has only one realistic option left and that is of the 2nd seat at Williams for next year, with George Russell having already signed for the team for 2019.
“I have spoken with several teams, but it is a difficult decision for them. The clock is running, so I focus on running. The decision on my future will be announced very soon” Kubica said.
