Kubica to Find F1 Fate in 2 Weeks

Ever since Robert Kubica started his recuperation period in the Santa Corona hospital in Italy, people have been waiting for an answer to the most obvious question of all: How long will the Pole take to return to Formula 1?

While some have projected that the Renault driver would make a quick comeback to F1 racing and actually get to drive in a few events this season – the man himself argued he will do anything in his power to make sure that happens – his team principal Eric Boullier advised everyone to wait a couple of weeks before making any bold prediction.

As suggested by the medical staff at the aforementioned facility a while back, Kubica's condition is still very much unclear due to the complex nature of his rally crash injuries. That being said, a closer-to-the-truth diagnosis can only be made a few weeks after the final surgery.

It's still very early, he's just started his rehabilitation this week, and the hand and the elbow are two tricky parts that got injured in the accident,” confirmed Boullier in a recent interview with the BBC Radio Five Live.

We still need to wait a couple of weeks, I think, to have a clear understanding of the recovery. It's not easy for him to understand (how the recovery) will go and now morale is difficult for him as well because obviously you realize how tough it will be to work and be back.

Kubica injured his right hand, elbow, humerus and leg as a result of a rally crash in Italy in early February. After escaping a potential amputation of his right hand, Kubica underwent 3 lengthly operations to stabilize his injuries, after which he chose to continue his recuperation in Italy.
