I just hope that Robert is not reacting to outside (media, LRGP, fans) pressure to shorten his rehabilitation.
Quite a few supportive comments about RK in press recently from LdM, Dommenicali, Boullier so it may all work out in the end.

Im happy to see Robert struggle. He is a huge prick. Renault invested 100m into him and the car, ran the whole team for him, got him a 2nd driver ala Massa and Webber (Petrov), so what does he go out and do? Crashes himself in mr beans car and screws him self up, but wait, Renault still supports Robert and continues to pay him but wait for Robert this is not good, he is now talking to Ferrari, I guess being a huge douchebag wasnt good enough for Robert. I hope he never races in F1 ever again, no manners and no respect for anyone but himself.

Dude had 300 people in Renault all working for him and his greed and stupidity ruined everything, bye robert, cya never in F1

@ Lol @ Kunica - While I wouldn't go as far as saying some things you have, I agree to a certain point.
Being in F1 - the pinnacle of motorsport should be good enough for any driver. I mean why/whats the point in doing rally or anything else dangerous in your spare time and risk being injured and losing F1 time. I'm a little bit pi55ed with RK and still Webber for that fact of going and messing it all up on things that aren't F1.
Seb loves snowboarding, but you dont hear him going out in the snow and risking a WDC, he is committed. I'm a Webber fan but I'm still angry Mark broke/fractured bones 2 years in a row, and I still think he screwed 2010 by that fact. Focus on F1 and not spare time sports if you are a F1 driver.

We wont see him in F1 again.

sad to say it, but after nearly losing your arm he's lucky to be alive.

I really enjoyed watching him race in 2010, and like alot of people thought him a future champion.

Sh t happens unfortunately. Hope he enjoyed the rally!

Some crass comments above...

With limited testing F1 is a part-time job for all drivers. They all do other activities as well.

Robert's injury was due to armco barrier going through his car. Freak accidents happen at random. Robert was very, very unlucky this time.

I don't think some of the comments here are fair to be honest.

I don't think he turned his back on Lotus/Renault by talking to Ferrari. I think it's more a case that Lotus have committed themselves (understandably) to 2012 with a different lineup in order to get the ball rolling with a development program. This has forced Kubica to look elsewhere for a drive for when he does return.

As for going off rallying and risking himself in the first place, I do think that, considering their pay and importance, it is a little reckless.... however... everyone has to have fun. If all I was limited to was F1 and related PR events I think i'd lose motivation and enjoyment and want to let off steam elsewhere. Racing is just as much about the 'mental' as it is the 'physical' and if a driver can find happiness in the odd rally (or on the ski slope or whatever) then I'm all for it.
