While this is an extraordinary piece of bad luck, I hope it just gives Kubica more time to rest and let his other injuries heal properly so he can regain full race fitness for a comeback in 2013. Not being an orthopedic surgeon or having access to his medical records, it's impossible to be sure, but I'd expect the nerve and muscle damage suffered in his arm and hand to be the biggest barrier preventing a return at the top level. While he waits for his ankle to recover, he will still be able to do some physiotherapy work on regaining the kind of strength and coordination he will require as a top driver. I wish him all the best and better luck in future.

Really bad luck!!! I think he would have been a regular race winner in the right car, and possible WDC. Now he'll be 2 seasons out. We'll see how KR does and that will probably be the benchmark. Then again KR has still been behind the wheel while RK hasn't

Lotus Renault/ Boullier replaced RK with KR for 2013.
Interetingly thier initials r opposite.
Really bad luck hope he recovers by 2013 from all injuries and this is his last accident. Too much bad luck for the man.
He shud visit church.

Unfortunately it looks like Robert will never return, but he would make a really good commentator on TV or radio with real up to date info.
Not the best I know, but, no matter who you are the bills still have to be paid.

I really feel for Kubica. This new injury will have effectively killed any chance of reviving his F1 career especially with all the middle and lower order teams looking for paid drivers. When Kubica is fit to race F1 cars again he will have been out of the cockpit, competitively, for 2 yrs. Unhappily i feel that Robert will have to look to racing i Saloon or GT racing in the future. Yet another in the annuls of should have been F1 WDC i fear.

Just where is the bubble wrap when you need it ? :)
A pity though because he's already lost one season, now part or all of next season. If it is a fracture of a bone fractured in 2011 recovery will most likely be longer than the first break. :(

As I understand it it's a break/re-break of the same area that was damaged in the accident. Given the accident was what, 9-10 months ago, that clearly shows the extent to which he was injured as it hadn't healed in that time. That seems to say he's a long long way off capable of fitness/driving again. My money is on never being anywhere near where he was, if even in a F1 car.
