But Daniele Morelli has refused to be drawn on when – or if – the 26-year-old Renault star can make a comeback to Formula 1, describing it as “impossible to predict”.
Morelli confirmed that Kubica is continuing to progress well having recently been transferred to the Santa Corona Hospital’s rehabilitation unit, after three lengthy operations to seat shocking fractures and to repair a partial amputation to his right hand.
“Robert is recovering well,” Morelli told Radio Sportiva.
“[But] we must distinguish between our optimism and the indulging of fanciful assumptions,” he insisted. “At the moment it’s impossible to talk about timeframes [to plot a return to F1].”
Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso confirmed he had paid another visit to his close friend in hospital, and echoed Morelli’s sentiments about Kubica’s ongoing recovery, which has fortunately been free of post-operative complications or infections.
However, Alonso added: “[He] is bored with the 16 or 17 hour days with nothing to do.”
Well, that’s hardly a surprise!
