what ever happened to bob kubica?
he was supposed to be back last autumn, and when that didn't happen, we got regular updates on his activities and speculation as to where he would land. i haven't heard anything in a while, though. is he running in simulators in fiorano, as was expected? is he somewhere else? was there a setback? did he give up on the come-back?

I think I heard that he can drive a road car again.

That may have even been on the podcast as a passing comment.

It's also mentioned here

It doesn't sound like we'll see him in a race car for a while yet. It was obviously wild optimism that he would be back for this season.

He suffered a setback when he broke his leg in a home accident in January:

RE: what ever happened to bob kubica?
we were told that wouldn't make a difference, since it would be healed before his arm anyway.

Tssssk, you should read my tweets, such as the one currently in my signature (I know it's a few days old, but still valid). Smile

RE: what ever happened to bob kubica?
Well, here are my 2 latest:

March 5th: Robert Kubica is said to be able to drive a regular road car now. Still not sure if he will ever be able to drive a #F1 car again.

20 minutes ago: Jaime Alguersuari apparently said Robert Kubica not even able to grab a glas and drink from it yet. #F1 comeback seems very far away.

I think he is done in F1. No team will take the risk.

No team will sign him without a test, but if a doctor signs him off and he is quick, someone will sign him.

Very doubtful. He won't have the reflexes to race F1 again. I hope I'm wrong, but think he is done in F1.

not sure how accurate this is and Google translate is a bit ropey, but it sounds like Kubica isn't as bad as some reports are saying and is back in a rally car.

It seems convenient so soon after someone who has no reason to lie says he isn't recovering very well.

RE: what ever happened to bob kubica?
It was always difficult to see Kubica making it back this year given his injuries - it is going to be even harder next year if he is fit to get into a front running team given the time he has had out and the question over if he can come back and be competitive -- I suppose a team like Williams might take a punt on him if they have a seat available

I think I'll wait for something official from Kubica or his management unless JB has been to med school over the winter.

Is that an official Button page? He tweets a lot, but I have never seen links to Facebook before and more athletes that have FB & Twitter tend to link to FB in their posts.

The off-season is ending with rumors of Ferrari supporting Kubica's recovery for possible Massa-replacement in 2013. According to this report, he has been driving a Renault...

RE: what ever happened to bob kubica?
Kubica would be at Ferrari - Ecclestone

Bernie Ecclestone is sure that Robert Kubica would have been driving for Ferrari this season if he hadn't been injured in a rally accident.
