It's always pleasing to know how enthusiastic Kubica remains as he progresses toward its goal of a possible F1 return. Adjustments were made to his car seat to lessen the load on his arm. But, he's physically improving with every drive, and hopefully will achieve his goal.

I'd like to see Kubica and Kobayashi return in the same team. I'm a bigger Kob fan, but I think he could learn a lot from an in form Kubica. It may just be a case of the nerves regrowing in his hand and rehabilitation to regain the strength and usability. It can be a lengthy process.

Plenty of photos of Robert with his hand on the steering wheel with no gloves, from on-board camera, holding trophies, phone, carying things etc.
No scars visible.

Look, I know Kubica was (still is) a great F1 driver, but I'm seeing this go the same way that Alessandro Nannini went after his crash - never came back to F1.
Even if microsurgery has made many advances in the past 20 years, I still don't think Kubica's hand can handle the strain of handling a F1 car for a full race.

Good for him, a man with talent.
Would love to see him back behind the wheel, and even with a bum arm, he would still beat the pants off Coulthard in DTM.
If he gets the drive with Merc, I may even start downloading the races..

@ Speed, it's not his strength, it's his movement. As it stands, he can physically handle the strain (he had am experience in someone's simulator (Ferrari) a while back and experienced pain with the vibration. He subsequently had a surgery to rectify it.) The problem is, that since he can't fully straighten his arm, therefore, he can't fit into a cockpit, let alone move around and operate a steering wheel inside of it. I have a very strong feeling he'll do F1 tests at least, and will be back in sportscars.
