Despite the Grand Prix literally running past his doorstep, Robert Kubica will not be making a surprise visit to the F1 paddock this weekend.

Robert Kubica According to Switzerland’s authoritative Blick newspaper, the Pole’s manager Daniele Morelli has confirmed that his star client will remain in the confines of his home, having been released from his Italian hospital just a few weeks ago.

“The hype would be too big, even if Robert has left the wheelchair and is making his first steps,” Morelli told veteran reporter Roger Benoit.

Morelli confirmed that Kubica is undergoing some five hours of rehabilitation therapy a day as the Pole works to regain the function in his right leg and arm, which were heavily injured in a rally accident in February.

“He is also using a pen with his right hand now,” Morelli added.
