WARSAW, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- Pole Robert Kubica, who will be leaving the Williams Racing team at the end of this year, may stay in F1 as a reserve driver.

Kubica's future is still unknown. The representatives of Haas and Racing Point would like to sign him as a reserve driver and they have arrived in Poland to start talks.

"I don't know my future, because some things are not confirmed. This season is really tough, but I like the challenges. My attitude is not changeable, altough we have some problems. I just do my job," he said in a press conference Tuesday.

"My passion is racing, so I want to compete. My goal is to develope both as a driver and as a human. It's difficult to say more, because I'm not the only one who should make a decision," added the driver.

Daniel Obajtek, the chairman of PKN Orlen company, which is the main sponsor of Kubica, confirmed that the negotiations with the teams are in progress.

"We want to stay in F1 as a company and simultaneously we back Robert. I won't give you the details, but I can assure we are in advanced talks," he said.
