If he is fit for rallies he is more than fit for F1. Obviously he has big passion for rally and maybe he'll do some tests with the DS3 WRC with potentialy some rallies in that car in the future.

mkd. what a ridiculous statement! robert has no lateral control on his elbow, no power in his wrist, and little movement in his fingers. he cannot fit into an f1 cockpit, well he could, but he wouldnt be able to turn the wheel. even the citroen has to be modified to place gearchange on left hand side, via paddles, and he has room to move in a lhd car.
like everyone else, i would like to see kubica back in f1, but even he accepts that it will never happen, barring a miracle.

@richard
I didn't meant about his current condition because I expressed incorrectly. I wanted to say that I think on rallies he has to be in better condition and stamina due to the several long days of strains

mkd. on that i fully agree. having rallied and raced, i would confirm that rallying is a hell of a lot harder. hat is why i believe loeb is far greater than the likes of schumi.
rallies in the bast, required 24 hr driving, and both mentally and physically, that was tough. maybe not quite as bad with modern 8 hour driving, but overall, the concentration required is tough.
