F1 » Kubica recuperation 'will be very long', warns doctor

Why is that? He's doing well apparently. Has feeling in his hand etc so I am sure at some point be back testing an F1 car. We will only know when he gets back behind the wheel if he still has it.

I wish him the very very best, but @Schrieker? "Much worse injuries" is pretty bold, and not well informed.

I've posted before on this, I am an Orthopeaedic and sports medicine specialist myself. We're very plainly in new territory for an F1 driver with these sorts of upper extremity/hand injuries given the modern steering wheel and its needs from a driver. This is medical science/art not science fiction.

I'm Half-Polish, if that matters a whit, I wish him as well as anyone, he would have done my proud-to-be Polish Mother very proud. We have to be hopeful, optimistic and realistic.

IMO complexity of the steering wheel is not going to be a problem. Driver still has to press one button with one hand at a time so it doesnt matter if there is one or ten buttons.
