Kubica: There’s no chance of me coming back to F1 soon

Published

Robert Kubica still on recovering process following his massive rally crash at Italy, it was his second race crash, and this one also killed Kubica’s 22 months career.

In 2007 he endured a massive crash during the 2007 Canadian Grand Prix, with his BMW Sauber hitting the wall heavily on the run down to the Turn 10 hairpin. Luckily he survived from this crash without any major injuries.

This season the Pole participates rally races and won the Ronde Gomitolo Di Lana in Italy, finishing one minute ahead of the field, and last month, in the Maritime Alpes near his adopted home of Monaco, he tested his injury-hit body to the limit.

He opened a two-minute lead over World Rally Championship veteran Freddy Loix, won 10 stages, and then crashed out near the end when his co-driver called a wrong pacenote. Both escaped unhurt as the car burned out, but Citroen have been impressed enough to consider running him next year in the level below WRC.

“I find it difficult to watch F1 races,” he told the Daily Express.

“I miss racing, that is the biggest problem. After the race, when I am at home, I think I am living a boring and monotonous life. When I am driving, thanks to concentrating, the limitations are not really affecting me a lot. I am grateful for what I have.

“You cannot get out of life everything you want. When I am driving race cars it is for sure much better than it was six months ago and it is very close to what I was doing before the accident. So it is very good.

“If I can move my arm again [freely], there is a chance that I will return. But until that happens, we’ll have to see. There’s no chance of me coming back to Formula One soon.”

“The strength, the power in the arm is not as good as it was, but if this was the only problem then two months of treatment and that would be gone. Unfortunately, there are bigger problems which you need to concentrate on solving than the power.

“I have limited functionality of the hand and the fingers but this is something I am convinced will come back slowly because the nerves need a lot of time.

“There has been slow progress this year. That is life. I will not gain anything by being frustrated. It is very simple. There is no other option than to keep pushing, keep working.”
