LONDON // Polish driver Robert Kubica has signed a contract extension with the Renault Formula One team which will keep him with the French outfit until the end of the 2012 season. Kubica, sixth in the world championship standings, had been linked with a move to Ferrari but is staying at the team with whom he has scored two podium finishes at Australia and Monaco this season. "It was a straightforward decision for me to continue with a team where I feel at home," the 25-year-old said in a statement.

"What's important for me is to be in the right atmosphere, with a good group of people, where everybody is pulling in the same direction. This is what we have tried to build from the beginning of my time with Renault." * Reuters
