    It was a media sensation when Alex Zanardi was permitted to finish the final 12 laps of the race in which had earlier lost his legs. It was the exact same car he drove that fateful day, albeit significantly modified so that he didn't have to use his feet / legs.

    Paralympian Oscar Pistorius was also the darling of the media, and an inspiration to millions, for his achievements in the face of an overwhelming obstacle.

    Not even close.

    If an open wheel car could be adapted to accomodate a legless driver (Alex Zanardi), I imagine it could be adapted to accomodate Robert's limitations.

    Jus sayn . . .

    Did someone suggest that he steer with his legs? Wow, what a dope he is!

    With all those buttons on the steering wheel, it is certainly true that driving a modern F1 car is somewhat akin to playing a piano.

    I hope the rumours aren't true as he is a damn good driver. If they are, hopefully he'll have a successful career in other motorsport.

    No doubt that this is just a rumor or even a fake news but as we are in off-season...I will leave this open

    Imo, this'll be the official news sooner or later.

    Do not believe Polish blogs I don't know nothing officially but about his return is unlikely. I spoke with few people and from what they know and from what i know rallying is possible for RK.
