Kubica: No plans at the moment

Robert Kubica says he has no plans for the future as recovery from injury continues
Robert Kubica says he has no plans for the future as he looks to continue his recovery from the injuries he sustained in a rallying accident early last year.

The Pole was left with multiple injuries in the accident, which occurred when he collided with a crash barrier – which then entered into the cabin of the Skoda Fabia S2000 he was driving.

While he has yet to return to single-seater action as a result of the injuries he sustained, the former BMW Sauber and Renault driver has been able to compete in a series of rallies and he admitted he was still taking his recovery one step at a time.

“For the, let's say future, I don't have any plans up until now,” he told Reuters. “In the end, I am still at the stage of rehabilitation but for sure I would love to compete in a high level championship, or in a rally or on a circuit.

"Until now I did some rallies, I did some testing on the race track and I hope my hand will improve and my general condition will improve."

Kubica did however admit that there was no immediate prospect of a return to F1 given the time he has now been away from the paddock.

"It is has been a long time unfortunately (since) I stopped with Formula One, so my contacts are very limited,” he said. “In all these months I have been concentrating on coming back and getting my health and body back to the best condition.”

Putting him back in an F1 car is such an unknown that I don't see any team taking that chance unless he can find an angel to provide the financing for it. Based on the interview he sure doesn't sound ready to come back. Hopefully his recovery continues and he can get back to a normal life.

Without any plans Robert is leading Rally Aci Como by 30s after 6 stages. He is driving citroen C4 WRC for the first time. Not bad. I wish (any teams) F1 car could be adapted so RK would join in soon.
