Kubica will start driving in October

Published

Sept.10 -The Pole Robert Kubica will ready for return to F1 by getting back behind the wheel in October. He is still getting better following he suffered a partially severed hand and major fracture during a Italian rallying accident in last February.

Kubica’s manager Daniele Morelli set that he will put his helmet on October.

“In October we consider that Robert can put a helmet on his head just to give a message of what he will be capable to do,” Morelli said. We are not talking of course of Formula 1 right away, but it is important that Robert can start to drive. Whether it is a simulator or a road car on a race track this is not really important – the important thing is the final step is achieved from a certain point of view.”

Robert Kubica undergoes the last of his five surgery a few weeks ago and is now stepping up his treatment work.

“Two weeks ago we had the very last operation which was for us a kind of little threat,” Morelli said. There were several question marks over the outcome, but fortunately the operation went well and Robert, the day after the operation, could right away move his elbow with I would say almost a normal movement. That is a fundamental act for the recovery of all the functions of his right arm.

“Having said that, it was a very important step because now Robert has started I would say, the final part of his recovery because he can now move his right arm in an active way, that means all the muscles that haven’t been working for several months and were in a very bad situation and have a lack of strength. Now the recovery is focussed on the strength and day-after-day Robert is increasing the strength of his right arm, wrist, fingers and all the parts that were affected.”

“We don’t have now anymore concern about the final outcome of the recovery of Robert in general. Of course we must be positive and it is important to be positive in this kind of situation – but Robert is working really, really hard. You know him, he is a hound! The doctors and the physiotherapists must tell him to slow down sometimes because he is doing too much. But it is better to slow him down rather than the opposite way around. So am I here to say that we have good news. He said.

“We still need nature to do its work because we have the nerves that still must complete their recovery, but we do not have any concrete obstacle. It is just a question of time.”
