Robert Kubica got back behind the wheel of a go-kart

Robert Kubica has made another step in his recovery, with the Polish driver taking part in a few laps behind the wheel of a go-kart at the MyKart facility at the Italian town of Montecatini.

Wearing one of his helmets from his BMW Sauber days and looking understandably heavier than we are used to seeing him, the former Renault F1 driver turned three laps around the circuit and posed for a few photographs.

His right hand – which was partially amputated in that infamous rally accident just over a year ago – was kept out of shot.

Last week, the Pole got back behind the wheel of a Skoda Fabia rally car in a private test, piloting the same type of vehicle that he slammed into the guardrails during last year’s Ronde di Andora rally.
