It was a sad day in 2011, for the motorsports community when F1 driver Robert Kubica suffered a career-threatening rally crash in 2011. One of the most talented and well-respected drivers in the paddock, Kubica has been on the long road to recovery ever since. Making what most believed to be great progress, he has had his eye on getting back into a Formula 1 driver's seat.
Recently, however, the news for Kubica's potential return to F1 seems to have taken a downturn. In an interview published on the , Scuderia Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali admitted that Ferrari had been looking at Kubica to sign on as a driver.
"Yes, we were keeping an eye on him. Unfortunately, I don't think he will be back, because with his physical problem, he would struggle in certain limited situations which require reactivity. It's a shame," Domenicali told Riccardo Verdelli.
Kubica's 2011 crash, which partially severed his right arm, limited his mobility, and rendered him unable to be consistently competitive on all of the Formula 1 circuits. He is competing in rally racing this season, and at just 28 years of age, still firmly believes that he can eventually make a return to F1.
