Robert Kubica reveals F1 return unlikely

Robert Kubica

While driving an old WRC-spec Citroën C4 in the Rally di Como in Italy, Robert Kubica has revealed he is currently unable to drive single seater racecars, making a return to Formula 1 virtually impossible.

In a brief interview from Reuters posted to the BBC Sport website, Kubica said his focus is to get his “health and body back into the best condition.”

The former F1 driver will turn 28 in early December and stated he still hopes to compete in “high-level championships in rally or on a circuit.” However, “big limitation” to the movement of his right arm, injured in February 2011, means single seaters are not on his radar for now.

This is one of the sadder stories from F1 in recent times. All things being equal you’d think a fit and able Kubica would have already notched up a couple of wins at the wheel of the Lotus E20.
