Robert was wearing a thirt yesterday, his arm is OK, he is not trying to hide it. There is a film footage when he is holding a stearing wheel with his right hand. No problem there.

I am very skeptical for two reasons. The severity of the injury, and time away from the sport. But his talent is immense and he is young. So, if rallying and rehab takes care of the injury and he can recuperate adequately, time in a simulator and perhaps a season or select races in GP2, or even INdy Car for that matter, would give him some strong open wheel competition.
And then it's a long shot...
Hey, Zanardi just won a couple of gold medals and stands a good chance of competing again at Indy. The will to compete is super strong in certain individuals.

Can't see why so many people are saying he won't be able to make it back to F1. His injuries arose from rallying not F1 and he completed the first stage of his first rally a full 11 seconds faster than anyone else so no fear there and rallying involves a lot more hand and arm movement than an F1 car so I for one fully expect him back in a good seat at F1 if that is what he wants to do.

Robert seems to be better than before! He was taking part in lesser rallies before but not with such a dominance. He is increasing his lead through the day!

cobalt. dont get carried away. roberts performance is good, but this is just a small rally, and a step forwards.
who is lying second? loeb, latvala, wilson? he is competing against local drivers! not saying that they are useless, but things must be kept in perspective. now, if he was competing in the top 10 in the rac, i would be more optimistic!

Richard, I am comparing like with like, Robert was competing in local rallies before, he was able to win on that level.
Before he was able to finish in top 10 in bigger rallies, if he did that now it would mean 100% recovery! I am not expecting that to happen straight away.
Anyway, I was expecting that he will just complete the course, midfield maybe, so I am impressed.
