His Career is not over! There will always be a team willing to take a chance on him. He probably wont return with a top team but Im sure one of the back of the grid teams will be more than willing to take him. All he will need is one season with a bad team, and im sure once he proves he is still quick, a top team will be offering him a deal.

I wish good luck to one of the unluckiest drivers today!

I think it's way too soon to say his career is over too. A broken leg? Really? Plenty of drivers have recovered from that and honestly, it probably won't extend his healing time too much. The hand is probably still the bigger issue. Anyway, as Brando points out, if indeed he comes to a point of recovery where he can drive at all, I'm pretty sure there are a number of teams who would be willing to take a chance with him. For someone like Sauber for example it would be a golden opportunity, and I can bet he still has some friends there too. I imagine the likes of Force India or Williams would be delighted to have him on board aswell, and if not it would be great PR for any of the smaller teams to be able to say they have signed an F1 race winner. Well, Team Tony already has that I suppose but still.

Dissappointed in Crash.net for not editing mishmosh's comments, I've seen them edit far less worse comments. No need to lash out at his nationality, we've seen two great motogp riders get hurt in the last month as well. Fact is RK has done well in the past including winning or coming in second (I can't recall) in formula 3 i believe in Macau only 8 weeks after a car crash in which he was a passenger and he did with a cast on his right hand that he could not use while driving a the race car...STICK. He steered and shifted with one hand. This too shall pass and he will be back!

I'm a doctor, albeit a GP and not an orthopaedic surgeon, although I have worked in that specialty. Given both the nature of his injuries and the increasing lack of progress with his rehab, I have been getting less and less optimistic here. To compete at the top in F1 you require exquisite fine motor control, and first-class reflexes and I just cannot see, sorry, how someone who first partially severed a forearm (and the strength and fine motor control will NEVER be as good as beforehand in that arm no matter what he does) and who has not even managed to return to driving in 12 months could ever realistically come back to an elite-level sport like F1.
After this latest mishap I would, sadly, downgrade his chances from slim to nil.
It is a crying shame as he is by all accounts a lovely bloke and was on the verge of greatness. Get well soon Robert, but I fear you are probably beginning to realise it's over. That is by no means what I want to say, but is simply an opinion based on a litt
