Polish F1 driver Robert Kubica to miss start of 2012 season due to injuries

Robert Kubica, the first Polish driver to compete in Formula One and a one-time race winner, will miss the start of the 2012 season as he continues to recover from injuries sustained in a rallying crash earlier this year. And it’s still unclear whether he will ever race again.

Kubica, who is hugely popular in his home country and had been touted as a potential world champion, was due to race for the Renault team this year before almost losing his right hand in a crash in the Ronde di Andora rally in February this year. He was taking part in the rally for his own personal enjoyment ahead of the start of the 2011 Formula One season.

There has been speculation all year about whether Kubica will ever return to F1 racing. His recovery from the injuries is said to be going well, although there are also rumours that he might never recover the necessary feeling to compete at the top. His Renault team say they are talking to him about 2013 and beyond, but in the meantime they are expected to sign France’s Romain Grosjean to partner Russian Vitaly Petrov.
