SO... the big question now is who gets the thankless task of taking his place at Lotus knowing that the second he is fit enough they will be dropped like a brick. While also having to deal with not only Eric Bouiller's piss poor attitude, but constantly being compared to Kubica, as well as being told that they aren't good enough and their job is under threat...
ANY TAKERS??? Not all at once please...

I hope he will be back in the Renault next year. He reminds me of Mika Hakkinen. Blisteringly quick but that accident in 1995 at Adelaide could have spelt the end of his career. It didnt...he came back from deaths door and won a couple of championships... In a competetive car, Kubica would be a VERY strong force to be reckoned with.

Not surprised at this announcement. The head honcho at Renault, Boullier
has been aware of this for some time. The opening is here for his contract
driver to show what he has. Senna good bye. Reading the F1 crystal ball
Rubins and Massa may be looking for a seat. Both would improve the driver
situation at Renault. The car now at best is just a midfield unreformed
Turtle sporting Lotus colors.

@The Vern: try to see the last 10-12 laps of the 2010 Shanghai Race.
Citing Brundle on BBC: "(full) respect", "I reckon that if you put Kubica in a good wining car he can do great things", "he elevated himself into the great pilots category", etc, etc.
2011 should have been the breaktrough year for him. And in the first half of the season, Renault was a race wining car (see Petrov's and Heidfeld's podiums).
It would have been enough to get him a 2012 seat at Ferrari.
