Kubica says he "can't drive single seaters"

Post by crl on Thu Nov 15, 2012 7:59 pm

Well, it looks like we really can forget a comeback for Robert. At least he won a race before the crash. Hear the rest here:

What a shame. Was really looking forward to a comeback for him. Poor guy just can't catch a break. Sad

That sucks. At least he can say he won in F1 though.

Really sad. Maybe we'll see him in ALMS or Grand Am. Maybe.

Most likely the WRC or a touring car series.

Very sad, he now goes in the list of greatest drivers never to win a championship along with the likes of Chris Amon and others. Please have a go at the BTCC Robert?

LOL. His resume would already be better than Neal's, Plato's, Shedden's, etc.

Poor Kubica, first Rally crash then slipped on Ice near his home. He's never had any luck after the 2010 F1 Season.

So's Neal, but an F1 win greatly outweighs a BTCC title. To me, anyway.

I'm not surprised that Kubica opted to throw in the hat.

As a sidenote, Gary Bettenhausen still competed in IndyCars after paralyzing his left forearm....

Damn, that's a terrible shame; he was a better racer than Vettel ever was IMO - he would've walked 2010 in that Red Bull. Sad

He should take the route that F1 and Indycar drivers have been taking over the last 5 years. NASCAR!

So, Kubica may not be able to race single seaters, but he sure can race rally cars. Jari-Matti Latvala warned him that the Rallye du Var might be a big challenge for him and that he should be content with a podium finish. Kubica is currently leading it by nearly a minute and a half. After the first day.

Loeb's already scaling back for next year, unfortunately. But I wouldn't be surprised if someone picked him up for a run at the WRC next year; his lead is now up to FIVE MINUTES.
