Robert Kubica has warned against reading too much into his Mercedes DTM test on Thursday.

Kubica will get behind the wheel of a DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupe in Valencia in the hope of getting "acclimatised to a race car again". He is currently unable to drive a single-seater due to a lack of mobility in his arm and is set to compete in the European Rally Championship this year.

Although his return to testing a relatively high-downforce car this week is encouraging, he stressed that it is too early to make any concrete plans for the future.

"I'm really pleased that Mercedes-Benz is giving me the opportunity to test their DTM car and I'm looking forward to getting," he said. "It will be in proper testing conditions, on a permanent circuit, and it's important because the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé has good levels of downforce.

"It's still too early to make any statements about my future because of this one test. I'm just looking forward to tomorrow and we'll see what happens after that."
