Robert Kubica has launched his own team to contest the world rally championship in 2015.

The Pole's F1 career ended when he almost severed his hand in a 2011 pre-season rallying crash.

But he has since returned to driving, this time in the highest category in the world of rallying.

And in 2015, the 30-year-old will contest the world rally championship with a Ford Fiesta under the banner of his own team, entitled RK World Rally Team, the German news agency SID reported.

The first round of the season is this week's rally Monte-Carlo. Kubica finished the 2014 championship in 16th place, driving for M-Sport.
