This is a +ve story and everyone should be wishing him the best for a speedy recovery and not armchair doctoring. Lots of people have sustained similar injuries (incl.me), albeit few, thankfully to the extent of RK.

But aside from recovery rates varying dramatically between individual, as well as pre-accident physical condition being an important component, don't underestimate the recovery/treatment programme RK has been through, I briefly have seen the details of some of it and it is breathtaking

"Robert is exercising the right elbow by flexing and tensing it, soon he will start twisting it," Morelli .

Robert only has until the beginning of November to say if he will be ready for Renault. But,he is not even twisting his arm yet. We are all behind him but 50/50 is probably verging on the side of optimism. God help him.

Well, unlike many on this thread, I actually AM a doctor (albeit a GP, and not an upper limb ortho surgeon, although I have doen some training in that area) and I hate to say it, but I have always been quite pessimistic that he'll recover from injuries of that nature. It's one thing regaining decent power and hand function, it's entirely another operating at the pinnacle of a sport that requires terrific phsyical fitness and razor-sharp reflexes and hand-eye co-ordination.
Nobody will be more pleased thn me if I am wrong, however, and I too wish him all the best. I just wouldn't get my hopes up too much, folks.

Young people certainly heal quicker than us older ones, and Robert is a younger person complete with a natural desire and drive to succeed. With the odds against him I think he will just dig deeper and work through it. All the best of luck Robert, we know you have it in you.

Very good.
I've been watching some 2010 races again lately and Kubica is greatly missed. Huge talent and massively fast. It would be a tragedy if he never got behind the wheel again.

Now they just have to put some clause in his contract to keep him from doing another dumb stunt.
