Kubica rules out imminent F1 return

Robert Kubica has admitted that he is unlikely to make a Formula One comeback anytime soon as he is still struggling with some mobility problems.


The Pole was seriously injured in a horrific rallying accident shortly before the start of the 2011 season, sustaining multiple fractures to his right arm and leg.

After spending more than a year on the sidelines, he made a return to rallying late last year and won the Rally di Como in a WRC Citroen C4. Since then he has been linked with a return to F1 as a replacement for Romain Grosjean at Lotus while Ferrari are reportedly also interested in him.

However, the 28-year-old concedes a return to Formula One is not on the cards in the immediate future.

"I was hoping that I'd be back behind the wheel of an F1 car soon, but it didn't work out," he told Autoweek magazine, "The main problem is the mobility of my elbow and wrist.

"I had several operations that were meant to improve this issue, but there's not been a spectacular improvement. I still find it difficult to move my right arm.

"If I can move my arm again, there is a chance that I will return [to F1] but, until that happens, we'll have to see. There's no chance of me coming back to F1 soon."

Kubica, though, admits he hasn't decided on his future, but admits he could stay in rallying.

I don't know, but I will make a decision very soon," he admitted. "We're talking with people at the moment, and everything will be decided by the end of the year."
