Robert Kubica would 'wake' Williams up claims Bernie Ecclestone

Kubica completes'successful Williams test

He also believed in an 80 to 90 percent return to the open-wheel racing series.

Bernie Ecclestone believes Robert Kubica's place is back in Formula 1, with the former supremo convinced the Pole can come back even stronger than before.

To give a brief background on Kubica, the Polish driver has not competed in a Formula 1 race since his rally accident in 2011, which left him with major injuries to his right arm.

Though Renault has since signed Carlos Sainz on a loan deal for next year, Kubica's attentions have now turned to Felipe Massa's seat at Williams.

Kubica drove a 2014 FW36 vehicle during his one day test at Silverstone and was said to have been "successful". Though there are lingering questions about Kubica's physical limitations, Rosberg has no doubts he is capable of returning.

'The team hasn't been performing as well as it should have done, and whether it is because of drivers or the team in general, I don't know. "It is about getting to know each other and if it fits well it will be absolutely awesome to see Kubica back on the grid and in F1". More testing is scheduled for both Kubica and Di Resta at the Hungaroring, but Williams has not said when. Kubica was the star of the two-day test at circuit at the start of the summer break, with a large Polish contingent turning out to watch him drive.

Ecclestone then continued to comment on the state of underperforming Williams, who sit 81 points behind fourth-placed Force India in the Constructors' Championship.

"We will test those two drivers", team technical director Paddy Lowe confirmed.

Kubica has generated huge publicity since he became a candidate for an F1 seat, with his mid-season test for Renault one of the biggest stories and social media events of the season.

Next week sees the Pole go head-to-head with Paul di Resta as the Grove outfit looks for a teammate for Lance Stroll for next season.
