Former Formula One driver Robert Kubica has confirmed that over the winter he will consider having further surgery on his hand in order to be able to make a return to Formula One in the future.
The Polish driver who entered Formula One with BMW in 2007 was touted as a driver who would go on to claim great success in Formula One. The Pole took his sole Formula One victory for BMW at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal giving the German marque their first ever Formula One win as a works F1 team.
Kubica was with the BMW Sauber F1 Team from 2006 – 2009 before moving to Renault ahead of the 2010 season after BMW took the decision to pull out of Formula One.
In his first season with Renault Kubica finished the season in eighth place for the Enstone outfit picking up three podium finishes. Ahead of the 2011 season, Kubica was involved in a horrific rally accident where he suffered terrible injuries including a partially severed right hand which has been re-attached.
Since recovering from the accident Kubica has been competing in the World Rally Championship in a privately run Ford Fiesta with M Sport.
The Pole has stated that his dream is to one day return to Formula One and if he undergoes further surgery to improve the movement in his hand it may allow him to return to Formula One.
Speaking about the situation, Kubica stated a return to Formula One ‘Would be a dream.’
