Renault not giving up on Kubica

Renault not giving up on Kubica

Despite signing Kimi Raikkonen for next year's Championship, Renault team boss Eric Boullier insists his team has not given up on Robert Kubica.

The Pole has been out of action since early February when he suffered horrific injuries in a rally accident.

At present there is no timeframe for when Kubica may return to Formula One, although it is certain that he will not be fit to take part in pre-season testing.

He is also out of contract with Renault at the end of this season with reports claiming he may have signed an option with Ferrari to race for the Italian stable in 2013.

Boullier has already said that if those reports are true, Renault will not spend the time and effort getting Kubica race-fit.

However, if they aren't, the Polish driver could still be in line to race at some point next year.

"All the scenarios are possible," Boullier told Autosport.

"I need to sit down with Robert and his manager to understand what is the timescale for him to come back.

"We have confirmed Kimi and we will confirm the second seat when we are ready to confirm it."
