    Robert Kubica - The comeback trail

    Kubica test a 2012 F1 Lotus at Valencia's Ricardo Tormo track today. When l think of Robert, l always think what he could have achieved if he didn't have that rally accident. It would be great to see if he still has that promising talent that won him the 2008 Canadian GP.

    A Kubica return would be very popular l think

    He'd be popular with those fans who remember him, but he's not a marketable face and there is a lot of young fresh talent coming through. I'd be interested to see how he does however and would enjoy seeing him come back.

    I don't watch much F1 these days though, only watched one race this season. Family life gets in the way. My motorsport fix these days is mostly bikes. Thought I'd pop in and say hi.

    As much as I would love to see his talent somewhat fulfilled I doubt he will be making a successful comeback to F1 at his age. However, if he does then that would be awesome for him and a delight for us as fans

    It would be great to see him back in F1, or if not, some other high profile series.

    Best wishes to Robert after all he has been through.

    I've allways hoped to see Kubica back, doing what he does best at the highest possible level, and seeing him racing an F1 car in anger again would put a big smile on my face and a bit of joy in my soul, but I'd only want to see it happen if he could do himself justice.
