After suffering severe injuries, Robert Kubica is to test again for Renault. He and his team will explore the possibility of making a comeback to Formula 1.
In 2011, Kubica crashed into a church wall during the Ronde di Andora rally and suffered severe damage to his right hand, arm and leg. Kubica faced intense surgery as well as a partial amputation of his forearm.
Before this life-changing crash, Kubica expressed much talent in Formula 1 and stood very near alongside Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.
Skysports cites Fernando Alonso in 2012 saying: "For me the best driver is Robert Kubica. When he returns, which will surely be soon, I'm sure he will continue to be the best driver."
Kubica’s comeback drive in June suggested a possibility of a full-time return to Formula 1. Renault confirmed Kubica completing 115 laps in Spain Skysports adds.
However, he faces many obstacles if he is to make this possibility a reality. Although there is much excitement around this potentiality, senior figures are sceptical about a full F1 comeback BBC Sport states.
BBC Sport relays Kubica mentioning: I know I can do pretty well behind the wheel of an F1 car already after one day of testing. So more can come from me.
“It is a good feeling. It is something I was not expecting, to deliver so good straight away.
“I still know there is a long way to go and I need to do it step by step. If I have an opportunity, I will try to do my best. If not, I will search for something else. It has been a long time away from the circuit.”
