Kubica and C° deliver home win and ELMS title to WRT


Robert Kubica and teammates Louis Deletraz and Yifei Ye delivered on Sunday a home win at Spa and the European Le Mans Series title to Team WRT with one race to spare.

The trio's third triumph of the 2021 ELMS season was a revenge over the heartbreaking last lap retirement it had suffered at Le Mans last month while leading the LMP2 class.

"We are very happy, we couldn’t expect a better weekend on our home track!" said Kubica.

"After Le Mans, it was nice to be back racing and put everything behind. We did a good race, took no risks and our main competitor struggled.

"We take the championship before it ends, I really want to thank the entire team, my teammates and everybody who made that possible."

After subbing for Kimi Raikkonen at Zandvoort and Monza, Kubica will hand back to the Finn his drive with Alfa Romeo Racing for this week's Russian Grand Prix.
