I certainly hope he does get a go on a Friday practice, and I don't doubt he will be able to set faster times than Heidfeld and Petrov, will be interesting to see what that Renault can actually do with someone who can actually drive piloting it.

These guys heal up with such haste that I guess we've grown to expect them to bounce back and not miss a GP. In MotoGP, they come back 5 weeks after breaking collar bones and legs, etc. We probably just became inured and assume doctors can work miracles. No way he'd figure in the points anyway so it would be smarter to use the season to heal.

I'd like to see Kubica back as soon as possible.
Perhaps more than any other current driver he seems to be able to drive a car beyond it's limits consistently and I would like to see if he can keep that up when he is in a car that is even close to the guys on top.

BUT!
More important is a full recovery and if that means sitting out this season, so be it.

here we with all those that will disagree - Kubica will race again but not in F1. Given the number of injuries he sustained with the recovery time needed and time away from F1 well as nerve damage to his hand ! I can't see him taking part in F1 other than a few test sessions.

I don't believe Robert will ever recover fully and it would be very sad to see him struggling to get back up to speed. It would be a huge loss for F1 if that happens as Robert was the one person on the grid who could perform above the level of his car and get results that the likes of Heidfield and Petrov could only dream about
