This is very worrying. I really don't know what is going on between LRGP and Robert. I only hope RK will fully recover by the start of the season and will be able to come back.
All seats in top teams are decided by now... Holding my breath for the next few months...

Eddie and cobalt, it has been a long time. I think we will stiill see robert. Hopefully with the prancing horse. Renault will never be a top 3notch team so forget this team and the joker boullier. Everything happens for a reason. I hope hee can just return to form.

If and it's a big if Kubica can drive again it will hopefully be with Ferrari. Massa has
already been warned to up his game or else so if Kubica is up to the job he will be a natural shoein in place of Massa possibly midseason next year. Kubica is best off well away from Renault and especially Boullier who seems to change his mind every time another driver offers money to drive for him. He is I suspect not long for his job either. Renault need someone with a clear view of where they are going and not this bumbling pratt.

ummmm it might be unlikely but do you think Force India will try to take Robert onboard?? That said I don't think either of Di Resta or Hulk will be ready to sign half season contract.

Next year perhaps Ferrari or even Red Bull might be looking for Kubica as driver 2.... and thats not really exciting for him.

Eddie, Olek, Good to see you again.
I know there is a lot of maybes and wishfull thinking but Robert deserves another chance.

I just dont know if this is a usual negotiation of the extension of his contract with LRGP (Boullier wanted long term commitment) or there is a real possibility to move to Ferrari as a test driver (at first).

And Force India is not a bad team...

blzbub. i read that ferrari comment too, but i take it with a grain of salt. first of all, the article is "suggesting", NOT stating fact. secondly, as shown by boulliers comment, he is nowhere near even sitting in a simulator, and there are serious doubts if he will ever drive competitively again. thirdly, he wouldnt be allowed to test a f150, as it would be in contravention of the current rules. he could test one at the test day, IF ferrari gave up a test in their new car, and that is highly unlikely. however he could drive a car over two years old. and finally, i cannot see ferrari even contemplating kubica at present, in view of the seriousness of his injuries.
if he can drive an f1 car, he would need at least a year in a midfield car so as to assess his capabilities.
