Robert Kubica has confirmed that he will continue to race in the World Rally Championship in the 2015 season.
Former Formula One driver Kubica has competed in the WRC for the last two years after making his return to racing following a crash in February 2011 in which he suffered severe injuries.
That accident cut short Kubica's F1 career, however, the 30-year-old revealed in October that he was considering going back to circuit racing.
But for now Kubica has decided to stay in rallying and will drive a Ford Fiesta RS WRC together with co-driver Maciek Szczepaniak, backed by Polish oil company LOTOS.
"After analysing the situation I decided to continue in WRC, where the challenge for me is still the biggest," Kubica said.
"It took me a long time to make this decision, but there was no pressure at all. I wanted to be sure about it and I did not want to rush. There will be some more new things to come, but I will announce them later."
Kubica's first competitive event of 2015 comes at the Rally Monte Carlo, which takes place from January 22-25.
The Krakow-born driver has yet to finish on the podium in WRC after doing so 12 times in a F1 career that saw him race for Sauber and Renault.
His only F1 win came at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix.
