F1 » 'Impossible to predict' if or when Kubica will return

Robert Kubica's manager Daniel Morelli underlines that despite positive progress so far and the Pole's determination to return to F1, 'we must distinguish between our optimism and the indulging of fanciful assumptions'

Good luck to you Robert. And the article says the guardrails were dangerous and there is a police investigation. Anyone who watches rallying knows the whole idea is very dangerous. And if a police investigation is underway are they going to sue someone? I thought all drivers after testing the route knew of all the dangers. Seems a bit crazy to investigate a public road being used for a race to determine if it is dangerous. It's dangerous everytime they race in this series.

Motorsport is dangerous, it says so on the ticket

if there were any hazardous barriers they should have been noted on the pace notes and the driver should take the neccessary precautions.

I co drive an ex works car and when you are travelling at 60 - 100 mph through narrow tracks lined with walls, trees, boulders etc it isn't like fia approved tracks with oodles of run off and I'm sure Robert appreciates this and is aware of the risks every time he gets in any race car.

I wish him well in his recovery and hope to see him back both in f1 and the odd rally too

Robert already stated that there is no question of legal action but police has to sort out that barier (why it was dismantled or left damaged) for sake of everyday users of that road.

I will indulge in faciful assumption anyway and hope to see RK in Belgium, bit earlier in a test car.

The police investigation may seem excessive but keep in mind that this is Italy, where they tried to hold Frank Williams and Patrick Head responsible for Senna's death.

It seems like their tort law necessitates laying blame for accidents.

His hand was almost chopped off and he's saying he'll be back this year? I don't think so. In fact, I don't think he'll ever come back. Those who have ever broken or even just dislocated any bones will tell you it takes forever to heal and the pain stays for a long time. Don't forget his hand was almost chopped off. That means nerve damage and everything. How is he ever gonna regain the feel in his hand for godlike reflexes needed in F1? He should just be thankful to be alive.

motosport is dangerous - all drivers know that but, loose guardrails are much more dangerous. Even for everyday, normal drivers. I assume now ALL gaurdrails along ALL rally circuits have been checked, and doublechecked. Robert should praise GOD for saving his life.
