Niki is right. RK nearly killed himself messing about in a pointless rally. Renault spend about 70 million euros getting the 2011 car ready for RK as he's the lead driver. Renault are just being nice to RK while he gets well but they must be furious all the plans up in smoke. RK needs to remember he's part of a team.

All forms of motorsport are dangerous and all the very fast people are a split second away from an accident as they are pushing to the limit,sometimes people walk away totaly unscathed,and unfortunately sometimes they get hurt,if anyone should know this it is Niki Lauda.

Does Kubica rallying for competition/points or just for condition/concentration sake? thought the latter. I think Lauda seems to be a harsh person slamming others' activities like this one couse he nearly had lost his life so his 'mission' is to always avoid such things, think twice, etc. In some way he's right couse other drivers don't have such unlucky adventures but they also don't rush and provoke it that often. At the end I think it's something to rethink for Robert, the priorities and write off some definitelly unsafe races.
