Robert Kubica performed well whilst contesting Italy's Rally del Friuli at the weekend.

Polish media reports said the Formula One driver won some timed stages in the A6 class of the Italian Rally Championship event, at the wheel of a Renault Clio S1600.

Overall, he placed 13th, 7 minutes behind the winner and rivals with more powerful cars.

"I came here to have fun," said Kubica, whose Renault contract allows him to contest some rallies, unlike his previous BMW deal.

"I have to be careful not to risk too much, because Formula One is my real job. But I love the challenge of adapting to rallying," added the 25-year-old.

Not including the McLaren, Red Bull and Ferrari drivers, Kubica is the highest placed driver in the 2010 drivers' championship.
