After recovering from his horrific crash, Polish driver Robert Kubica has returned to racing. However, it is not Formula 1, as he is still not ready for it yet. This year, he managed to take victory in a domestic Italian rally, and again on Sunday, at the Rally Cita di Bassano, at the wheel of a Subaru Impreza WRC.
When asked about his future in F1, Kubica said: "The path towards recovery of the functionality of the arm injured in the Andora crash is still demanding, but in the meantime competing in rallies is good for me [. . .] It's a sort of active rehabilitation that isn't just physical. Competing also helps me mentally and gives me morale, and winning is also a good medicine [. . .] I want to carry on gradually, step by step, also because I don't know the timing of my possible full recovery. If I think of my future I see it 70 per cent on track and 30 per cent in rallying.

In the meantime I'm working with a view at facing a full championship at the highest possible level, in 2013 already, in order to hopefully be OK in 2014 [. . .] Talking about the [F1] world championship now is premature, I'm practically starting from scratch after the crash one and a half years ago. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the taste of an important victory,” he added when talking about his recent Italian rally success.
