The Pole was a Renault (now called Lotus) driver ahead of the 2011 season, when he was seriously hurt during a minor rally in Italy.

For months afterwards, Frenchman Boullier said the team was supporting Kubica's quest to return to F1, but there were rumours of a subsequent falling-out.

Boullier told the Daily Mail's World of F1 blog: "He (Kubica) stopped contact with us months ago."

It emerged last week that Kubica is still pushing to recover his driving fitness, having reportedly tested a works Ford world rally car.

Boullier insisted: "I cannot make any assumptions about anything because I am not in contact with him anymore."
