Kubica suffered from an engine failure during second practice at Monaco, and retired from the Grand Prix due to a brake issue. At the Turkish GP the team introduced the double diffuser. The car performance improved and Kubica managed to score his first points of the season with a 7th place. In the next 3 races both BMW Sauber drivers finished outside the points again, but during 2009 European Grand Prix and 2009 Belgian Grand Prix again proved to be competitive, scoring 8th and 4th positions respectively. In the 2009 Italian Grand Prix Kubica suffered engine trouble in qualifying and then retired from the race due to mechanical failure. At the 2009 Singapore Grand Prix Kubica finished 8th, defending his position from Nakajima and Räikkönen in the last laps. He later stated it was "the most difficult point I have ever scored". At the 2009 Brazilian Grand Prix Kubica scored his first podium of the season despite engine coolant problems by finishing in 2nd place, 7.6 seconds behind winner Mark Webber. The podium was BMW's second of the season.
On July 29, 2009 BMW announced they will leave Formula 1 at the end of 2009, making Kubica a free agent for the 2010 season. For the 2010 season, it has been announced that he has signed for Renault F1, the team he tested during his junior career.

At the Malaysian Grand Prix, Kubica qualified in eighth place, but was promoted to sixth following Vettel's ten-place grid penalty for causing the crash in Australia, and Rubens Barrichello's five-place grid drop for changing his gearbox. However, he retired very early in the race with engine problems. The next two races, the Chinese Grand Prix and the Bahrain Grand Prix were disappointing for the BMW Sauber team as both Kubica and his teammate Heidfeld finished outside the points with a non-competitive car. For the next race in Barcelona BMW Sauber prepared a modified version of the F1.09. The car proved more competitive but a mistake in fitting the tyres to Kubica's car during Q3 meant he could only qualify in 10th position. In the race, after a bad start (due to a clutch issue) he finished once more out of the points.
