CARDIFF, Wales - Robert Kubica will return to WRC in the 2013 Rally of Wales and Sebastien Ogier, already crowned World Rally champion, is not getting his hopes up ahead of the season-ending event.

Ogier said: "It's not my favourite event, I've had a lot of accidents here. The stages are really nice but very difficult to judge with varying grip levels - and then t here's the weather. This time, with more experience, I'm hoping to secure a good."


Ogier has raced in the event five times but has yet to post a top-10 finish. He won in Spain in October 2013, his eighth win in 12 races, and claimed the title in France.

Ogier said: "I'm very happy to do this rally without having to worry about the championship. It's a rally where anything can happen and it's very easy to make a mistake."

The rally will see the return of Robert Kubica to WRC. He had to abandon a promising F1 career after a life-threatening crash in a minor rally in Italy in 2011 in which he sustained compound fracture to his right elbow, shoulder and leg; a hand was almost severed.

Kubica won the second-tier World Rally 2 championship in his debut season in Spain in October 2013.

He said competing in Wales would be "a great opportunity and a huge challenge".

Kubica will have a new co-driver for this event: Maciek Baran, who partnered him throughout his debut season in WRC 2, will be replaced by Michele Ferrara.
