    very sad news
    what a talent. I would say what a waste, but that would be slightly unfair

    At least he can say he won a race and drove very well in his years in F1.
    More than many others can say
    you can't argue with results

    Terrible shame But we all knew it wasnt going to happen when he is out for a whole year.

    I know Button likes his cycling, Vettel likes skiing in his spare time. With Kubica, he competed in IRC. it just seemed he couldnt take time out, racing and competing was something he just had to do, and for that I admire him. Its just a great shame we wont see him in F1 anymore.

    Whilst I think this is the likely outcome, do you have a source? A quick internet search turned up nothing.

    Robert Kubica`s comeback to F1, his condition etc.
    About week ago on BBC sport appeared an article in which journalist wrote: "Kubica can drive a road car and a rally car without problem but the nerves in his right arm, which was partially severed are still not healed sufficiently to allow him to move his fingers quickly or accurately enough to operate the controls on an F1 car."

    Exactly, I don't see this "announced" anywhere either.

    That is too bad, but if that's the case I hope we see him continue on in rally.

    There is nothing official but you can follow polish blog where are all rumors about Robert Kubica come back. In one of latest entries there is doctor Rossello opinion that fingers are ok but problem is with his elbow.

    There is a hope but we have to wait.

    Thread title edited as I can't see this news in any Motorsport web-site and it could be a fake news
