Robert developed a love for motorsport at an early age and started karting as soon as he got his race licensed aged 10. In just three years, Robert had amassed six karting titles, once he was old enough to enter the Polish Karting Championship. He moved onwards and upwards to more competitive series, which resulted in even more success. Robert became the first foreigner to win the International Italian Junior Karting Championship, came second in the European Junior Karting Championship and he also won the Junior Monaco Kart Cup, amongst other successes. 

In 2000, Robert’s progression continued upwards with a test driver role in Formula Renault 2000, as well as a maiden pole position in single-seaters. Renault immediately placed Robert in their driver development programme and entered him in several Renault series, which would lead to more podium finishes.

2003 saw Robert graduate to the Formula Three Euro Series with Renault, before moving to the Mercedes team, with whom he broke the lap record in Macau. 

A year later, Robert moved up to the World Series by Renault, winning the championship in his rookie year. With four wins and eleven podiums, his talent was recognised with a prize Formula One test with the Renault F1 Team later that year. 

The following year in 2006, Robert began his Formula One career with BMW Sauber, becoming the first Polish driver to start an F1 race. Robert recorded a podium finish within just three race starts, making him the second driver to ever do so. In the following years, Robert went on to achieve race wins, podium finishes and a pole position, before he moved to Renault in 2010. 

Considered one of the sport’s most promising young talents and tipped to be a future world champion, Robert topped the pre-season test times in February 2010 before his career was put on hold. Robert suffered severe injuries in a rally accident which ruled him out of racing for several years, before a rehabilitation program put him back on the path to Formula One. 

In 2017, Robert undertook several Formula One tests with Renault and Williams, and has been announced as the team’s Reserve & Development Driver for the 2018 season.
