    He just recovered from a horror accident and he wants to compete in rally again? What an idiot..

    That’s what Ken Tyrrell always said: Get into the car straight after an accident. I’m sure Robert will get up to speed very quickly…return to F1? Let’s see if he really needs & wants F1 again!

    @ Matthias O’Keefe – What could be expected? I can’t see him hang up his gloves and work for a Bank! Racers will always be racers. Look at Zanardi for example! Big respect for Kubica!
