It was mentioned that it was the last he heard. As we don't know when that was, we can only hope it was a while back.

Either way, not the best news. I reckon Kubica could have won a race in 2011 had he not been hurt. Heidfeld and Petrov both got podiums, so a win for a much better driver would not have been out of the question. This year, him and Raikkonen would be a dream team. The 2012 car looks good, so I reckon the two of them could have easily move Lotus to 3rd in the Championship at least. Definitely a winning combination.

Taking nothing away from Grosjean, he's jsut not in the same league as Raikkonen and Kubica.

Here's hoping Kubica will be fit for at least practice sessions this season.

!After I saw the pictures from his accident. I wondered how in the world can he come back from that? I really can't see him coming back to F1. Those injuries were just too severe!

Thanks Murray.A few years ago I stood at Abbey during one afternoon of the three day test.Alongside me was Mark Hughes GP correspondent of Autosport.I didn't know him.But lap after lap Kubica came through that left/right sequence on the absolute limit in that unwieldy BMW.I looked at Hughes and said 'that's why I love GP''Yes'he said 'that's why'.So to all of those who said at the time that RK should not have been driving a rally car just bear in mind he was doing what he loved.And while LH was being groomed by McClaren Robert was on his own aged 14 working in a go-carting team in Italy because is father could no longer fund him.Respect.

This confirms my worst fears (that Kubica will not return to F1 anytime soon, if ever). Why would the report that he cannot even hold a drink glass be a lie and untrue? What a tragedy. F1 has lost one of its greatest characters.

5iveofnnn fair play to you there was a level kinship displayed that is rare on these pages.The one thing Kubica has on his side is the services of Dr.Riccardo Ceccarelli who is brilliant.And the goodwill of his many fans.

Robert met his fans recently, he was fine. Strong handshakes were mentioned. His arm muscles are not yet strong enough for driving F1 car so we will see but I wouldnt rule him out just yet.

i said long ago that considering his injury i couldn't see him coming back to f1. saloon car racing at best to satisfy his need for speed.

the guy had his arm almost completely severed with all the nerve and muscle damage he should be pleased just to be alive and have a good quality of life.

*sigh* Kubica is done in F1. He might live a normal life back again but to be competitive in F1 after a life threatening injury, he's kidding himself.
