Every one goes on about him like he won 10 championships or something. He was a good driver but F1 is not missing him, he never really had any impact on the sport. He's injured, he wont be coming back, lets move on shall we?

Titfortat, you really do come out with some silly things sometimes. F1 is, and has been missing him since his accident. Instead of having a top driver like Kubica, teams are filling their seats with pay drivers, and I KNOW that we would have had 1 less on the grid if Kubica was still able to race.

titfortat is basically correct. kubica had one lucky win in f1 and suddenly lots were claiming him to be an exceptional driver. he was in the middle to upper level, but there was no reason to see him as a future champion. apart from that, when you read the Ferrari statement, all it says is that he was "under consideration" , not that they were about to sign him. there were several others "under consideration " too.

Kubica had one lucky win??? L-O-L Do you even follow the sport??? Kubica is pretty much the only reason Lotus is still afloat. He saved the team from going under by driving the wheels out of the car, even managing to win a race in the process.

At the time, he was one of the top 3 drivers on anyone's list. To say that a guy like that is not missed or that he was 'lucky' is not only disrespectful is downright ignorant.

edoz. yes. he had ONE lucky win. as you follow the sport so intently, perhaps you could let us know what other win he got? and the ONLY win he got was courtesy of lulu seeing red! (or not), and that wasn't in a lotus!
I didn't say that he wasn't missed.

Kubica was a quality driver and we didn't get to see the best of him which was a shame for the sport. No doubt he was good enough to challenge for championships given a front running car.

One of the few drivers to score a podium in just his 3rd race and remember he was young (only 22) at the time, in fact he's still young at only 28.
