Robert Kubica on his Formula One comeback: ‘Nothing is Impossible’ 

Last updated on March 26th, 2019

Robert Kubica believes his striking comeback on F1 race shows “nothing is impossible”.

At the start of 2011 Formula One Season, Kubica got involved in a horrific accident that injured his chest and arm. Since then, he has been working towards a Formula One race seat.

Road Back to Formula One

Robert Kubica returned to rally in September 2012. By the end of 2017, Williams signed up Kubica as reserve driver for 2018. His return will team up with Formula 2 Champion George Russell.

During an event, Kubica said, “From a human point of view, I understand and I see that this is a story which probably nobody would have believed.”

The F1 racer will have to prove that he still has what it takes to drive competitively, despite the injuries he suffered seven years ago.

“The only one who probably never gave up was myself and the people who were around me, who I’d like to thank. But we all knew that it might be something that was not achievable.”

“This day shows that, somehow, nothing is impossible. Of course, a lot of things had to come together and a lot of work has been included to be here, and not only from my side. But from a driving point of view, the point is very simple: You won’t need to wait much longer to see!”

Kubica realized while testing for Renault last year he could still return and be able to drive a car again.

Committed to his return Robert Kubica said, “I think if I was not able to drive competitively fast, I would not be here.”

“People see my limitations and they are asking how it is possible. I know it is hard to believe but I have seen it in the last 16 or 18 months since I first drove an F1 car in Valencia last year that I can do it.”

After his accident, Kubica went out to do some rallying to test himself if we can still perform in the extreme conditions of Formula One.

“If everybody who understands a bit of motorsport sees an on board in a rally car, and if you see what I’ve been doing in rally cars, you’ll understand that driving a Formula One car in the wet is not a problem. Because what most people didn’t really understand is that there was a reason why I returned to rallying and that it was the best way of rehabilitation and pushing the limits.”

Kubica added if he is able to do it then surely he can come back to every kind of motorsport category in the world.
