Yes I agree but shouldn't they be more careful and think about their career, and shouldn't the F1 team guard their investment more carefully ?

I remember that time Webber injured his leg while, hiking - was it ? And he has a titanium rod in his leg now I think ?

I don't know how they could make such gambles !

Robert Kubica says a return to Formula 1 remains a "dream" but is "nearly impossible" based on the current state of his injuries sustained in an horrific rallying accident in 2011.

The Pole has returned to rallying, winning the second division of the World Rally Championship last month.

He's been a real loss to F1. Today there seem to be more pay drivers than drivers with talent. Hulk must be so regretting not having a sponsorship backing moving sideways year after year.

How does a racing driver put a nasty accident behind him?

Watch this amazing video of Kubica cutting through the dark in 2014 Internationale Jšnner Rallye. We had no doubt on his talent but this is balls of steel! Amazing!

Amazing car control and courage by Kubica in this video. Too bad we lost him from F1. That Fiesta' suspension is indeed something.



PS: He loses the Ford at the end of the video though!

This is seriously impressive at the F1 test in Hungary.

Kubica is back on track as he nears a century of laps.

And on his previous long-run, he was certainly a model of consistency.

1:21.208

1:21.436

1:21.356

1:21.344

1:21.575

1:21.180

1:21.548

1:21.053

1:21.654

1:21.521

1:21.382

1:21.383

Those times are firmly in the region or faster than the Hungarian GP fastest laps set by Jolyon Palmer (1:21.589) and Nico Hulkenberg (1:21.611)

Renault have been seriously scouting for a Kubica return in Spa, looks like the Pole is living up to the hype

I will be really happy to see him back in F1, he does have some unfinished business here!

Remarkable indeed! To be that fast and consistent with that right arm shows his massive talent and character! Wow!

Hope he can work his way for a slot in the grid.
