In other words its a step up to just being able to do what us talentless hoopleheads could do. Racing is further and F1 is over the horizon in comparison.

Here's an article on Robert's condition up to date - translated from Italian using google translate.

The wait will not be still long. A month or so and we will know the recovery of Robert Kubica. The team of Dr. Ceccarelli that follows the Polish driver often has to intervene because they do not exaggerate in an attempt to anticipate the times. The Lotus Renault driver has a special motivation. From the day of the accident which happened at Ronde of Andora February 6 with the Skoda Fabia has only one objective: to get back behind the wheel of a Formula 1. A sort of miracle because the damn crash Robert had almost severed his hand with the rail that pierced his car.

"We are not able to predict a precise date - says Daniele Morelli, manager of Kubica who has remained close to the rider - because it is nature that must take its course, but we are optimistic, very optimistic."

Eric Boullier, team principal of Lotus Renault, Robert is willing to wait until the end of October before making plans for 2012. A kind of ultimatum, which certainly can not take pleasure ...
"The day of return to a Formula 1 is not programmable, but I do not think that a delay of a couple of weeks can affect the plans - Morelli continues - one thing is certain: Kubica returns to lead. We do not know yet say precisely how long. Now the problem is more muscular and neurological. "

Meanwhile, there is a certainty. Kubica will return to Formula 1. And this is the first news. Important. Very important. The man probably would have felt gratified to still be alive. Not the pilot, Robert trains twice a day followed by the team in Viareggio Formula Medicine Dr. Riccardo Ceccarelli.

Suda, pushes, suffering, grits his teeth. Who knows, maybe be able to sit in the R31 in the tests that follow the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi, following an ideal timing that had been planned months ago ...
"It would be great, but not always - occurs Dr Ceccarelli - I would say that certainly will be an F1 driver Robert in 2012. I can not say when he will make his debut, between the months of November to January. "

We try to determine what is the status quo: the hand has regained the sensitivity of the fingers?
"The neurological aspect of being solved - Morelli continues - now looks like is to treat muscle and joint."

In short, the main foreclosure of return would have been exceeded ...
"Yes, it's great - adds Ceccarelli - the nervous sensibility has already arrived to the finger tips, do not forget that the incident had suffered the injury of two of the three nerves, the median and ulnar, in addition to the severing of tendons and muscles. He had lost the feeling from the wrist to the fingers, but now there are also muscular innervations. But healing is gradual: we say that Robert is amazing because it is the specialists on the tables known in advance. "

The aim is to check how it behaves in a simulator ...
"We clarify once and for all this - Morelli continues - perhaps too much attention has been created around the F1 simulator. Robert needs to get back to driving a car, a steering wheel shake. The evaluation will be enough to realize that the state of the art, then being a racing car, a Formula 1 or a simulator does not matter. Indeed, the simulator has created problems for several drivers (some suffer stomach, ed) and I would not add other variables. "

The speech is clear and not bat an eyelid. For the moment, Kubica is still not able to even get behind the wheel of a road car ...
"Yes it is true - added Riccardo Ceccarelli - Robert still has an external fixator on his leg which had suffered two fractures and could not drive a vehicle. The bone calcification is proceeding: you've seen on radiographs that would allow the welding stability. And since this is a very positive because in 70% of cases similar to this calcification is not the case! We did not rush to remove the fixator: the more the better, and keeps the result you can get. And as we wait for the healing time of the hand and the use of the elbow joint, I can say that there is still no hurry. "

When the fixator is removed, will be the last trip for Robert?
"Sure - Ceccarelli concludes - and we've a long way. When I say that nature must take its course is evident that there are still several aspects that must be kept under control: the muscle was inactive for months and must be recovered tone and strength. We have moved the big question: not if, but when you can drive a Formula 1 ".

The incident could have psychological repercussions of the pilot?
"No, he banged his head - the manager Daniele Morelli specific - say that now we just need to fix the issues ... "Mechanical". Robert will only demonstrate the ability to drive a Formula 1 car. His talent is still intact and can not wait to resume an interrupted conversation accident ...".

What next for Robert? Provide a return from a race driver in 2012 now seems a gamble. Much better to give him time, making him play a season as the third driver, perhaps putting it in the car in free practice on Friday (the FIA ​​may grant an exception to the Pole, as you would like to run in the first of three one-hour sessions only young people who have not played Gp) and the simulator.

The Lotus Renault does not seem the right team to develop this program and it will be interesting to see who will believe in full recovery of Kubica. Ferrari estimates the Polish and it is no secret to anyone that likes to Stefano Domenicali. All the more so in Maranello could also test the many Formula 1 customers without violating any regulations. A dream? Certainly, the more that Robert would be well seen by Fernando Alonso (the two are close friends) and could become a good stimulus for Felipe Massa who has another year of the contract if the recovery should be faster than expected.

The tales often have a happy ending. And that Robert's is a story that is destined to become a legend. We'll see who in the Circus has the courage to bet on the Polish sample. For now, we limit ourselves to a Robert Force!

Renault wants confirmation of Robert Kubica's return so it can finalise its driver line-up by mid-October © Sutton Images Enlarge

News:Boullier sets Kubica deadline
Profiles:Eric Boullier | Robert Kubica Teams:Renault The doctor in charge of Robert Kubica's rehabilitation says it is a "certainty" that he will return to Formula One in 2012.
Doctor says Kubica will return
Kubica's recovery has been the centre of much attention since his final operation, and the scrutiny was increased when Renault team principal Eric Boullier set a deadline of mid-October for confirmation of his driver line-up for next season. Dr Riccardo Ceccarelli said that he still couldn't put a firm date on Kubica's return, but that it would allow him to resume racing.

"I would say with certainty that Robert will be a F1 driver in 2012," Ceccarelli told Omnicorse. "I cannot say when he will be ready but it will be between the months of November and January."

Ceccarelli also said that the functionality of Kubica's right hand is no longer a concern.

"Yes, it's great, even if this healing is gradual. Not forgetting that Robert suffered injuries to two of the three nerves, and had severs of the tendons and muscles, the feeling has come back to the fingertips."

Kubica has yet to drive as part of his recovery, which Ceccarelli said was the result of giving his leg more stability while other injuries healed, but that he would soon be able to begin building up muscle again.

"It is true, Robert still has an external fixator on his leg and we have not rushed to remove it - the longer the better, and the better result. So as we wait for the healing of the hand and the elbow, there is still no hurry... The muscles have been inactive for months and so need to recover tone and strength. But the big question - if he can drive in formula one again - has gone."

Kubica's manager Daniele Morelli said that Boullier's deadline may be difficult to meet, but that he too was "certain" Kubica would be able to return.

"We are not able to predict a precise date (for Kubica's return) because it is nature taking its course," Morelli said. "But we are optimistic, very optimistic, and I do not think a delay of a couple of weeks can affect the plans. One thing is certain - he is coming back. The only problem now is muscular."

Yes, good news indeed. I just hope he doesn't participate any other forms of racing than F1 in the next 10 years. I also hope he hasn't lost any of his driving ability.

So Kubica has informed his team that he won't be available for the start of 2012 atleast :
“Even if I’ve been working very, very hard over the course of the last few weeks, I came to the conclusion that I am not yet certain to be ready for the 2012 season,” Robert said. “I have called the team and I have informed them of the situation. This was a difficult decision to make, but it is the most reasonable one. I also know that LRGP need to prepare for next year, and further extending deadlines would not have been the right thing to do. On a personal level, my recovery is still very encouraging and my doctors keep being impressed. I just need more time, as I want to be 100% ready before I commit to anything driving related. Finally, I regret not having been able to provide more news and not having appeared in the papers, and I thank my friends of the media for understanding that this has been the best way for me to cope with what has been the most difficult period of my life.”

Team principal Eric Boullier said: “Everybody in the team is, of course, very disappointed today. Robert not driving in Australia at the start of next season is not what we were all hoping for.

“However, he has taken a very mature decision, acting in the best interests of Lotus Renault GP. As a team and as a family, we remain 100% behind him and we’ll help as much as we can. A programme composed of simulator testing, single-seater and F1 track time is awaiting him.

“In the meantime, we will start talking to a few drivers in order to finalise our line-up for next year as soon as possible. Robert will take it step by step and will jump back in his racing car when he feels it is the right moment to do so. On behalf of all 520 members of the team, I wish him a speedy recovery.”
