June.14 – Robert Kubica’s manager Daniel Morelli, thinks that the Lotus-Renault GP driver may be fit enough to come back to battle for November’s season-ending Brazilian GP. The Pole keeps on receiving treatment for the rally accident which came close to taking his life in the pre-season testing period of February.
Early on this season Robert Kubica has suffered fractures to his left arm and left leg after a high-speed rally crash in Italy, currently, Nick Heidfeld is substituting alongside Vitaly Petrov.
“Robert’s recovery is progressing positively,” Morelli explained to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport. “The right leg is fine; if that was the only problem, Robert would be practically ready to return – so that’s not our worry. When Robert gets in the simulator he’ll immediately understand whether he’s able to come back, how and when, and without the need of a stop-watch.”
It is believed that Kubica’s prime concern continues to be his right hand, which was partially severed as a metal roadside barrier impaled the Skoda Fabia he was driving. Regaining full nervous ability is key in being able to manage the full operation of a racing car.
