However, after two years of recovery from a serious injury in 2011, the Pole Robert Kubica admitted that the desire to return to Formula One is practically unfeasible.
The 28-year-old Kubica has recovered enough to be able to compete in the rally. He won the WRC2 Series title with a few wins under his belt this year, but still dreams of driving a Formula One car again.
"A Formula One car could be driven on one or two lanes as part of testing," Kubica told the BBC. "But it doesn't make sense to test if I still can't race."
Last month, the Ferrari team's boss, Stefano Domenicali, had already written off the Pole's return, saying his injured arm was not yet fully functional. Kubica replied, “It is clear that I am limited. But I think only one person can judge what I can do behind the wheel and that’s me. Returning to Formula One is my dream, my goal, but it will be difficult. I would say it is almost impossible.
By no means will I seize the opportunity if I don’t feel one hundred percent ready. We will see if things improve one day, but for now I am focusing on the rally. ”
Kubica will drive a factory Citroen race car at the last rally of the World Championship in Great Britain, and his plans for the 2014 season remain unknown. The Pole, however, claims to have more options to choose from. “If I stay in the rally next season, I would like to drive the whole season. But this is a big challenge. One option is also to get back to circuit racing. It certainly won't be a single-seater race car, but at the moment I haven't decided what I'm going to do. ”
