Sept.28 – Dr Riccardo Ceccarelli in charge Robert Kubica’s treatment, he is full confident Robert will be a Formula 1 driver in 2012
“I would say with certainty that Robert will be a F1 driver in 2012,” Ceccarelli told Omnicorse. “I cannot say when he will be ready but it will be between the months of November and January.”
Dr Riccardo also added that Kubica’s right hand f functionality problems not affect long time.
“Yes, it’s great, even if this healing is gradual. Not forgetting that Robert suffered injuries to two of the three nerves, and had severs of the tendons and muscles, the feeling has come back to the fingertips. It is true, Robert still has an external fixator on his leg and we have not rushed to remove it – the longer the better, and the better result. So as we wait for the healing of the hand and the elbow, there is still no hurry… The muscles have been inactive for months and so need to recover tone and strength. But the big question – if he can drive in formula one again – has gone.”
Robert Kubica’s manager Daniele Morelli said that Boullier’s deadline may be difficult to meet, but that he too was “certain” Kubica would be able to return.
“We are not able to predict a precise date (for Kubica’s return) because it is nature taking its course,” Morelli said. “But we are optimistic, very optimistic, and I do not think a delay of a couple of weeks can affect the plans. One thing is certain – he is coming back. The only problem now is muscular.”
