Robert Kubica has seemingly defied reports of ill-health and raced go kart at an indoor race track in Pistoia, Italy. The photos of Kubica were first published by tkart.it. Kubica was however depicted in a helmet from his BMW days.
Whilst only racing friends at the ‘MyKart’ kart centre, it has served notice that he is able bodied enough to negotiate a loaded steering wheel – and important process in his rehabilitation.
The Polish driver has been absent from Formula 1 after suffering severe injuries to his right hand and leg in a local Italian rally.
This recent twist in his recuperation will no doubt cast further speculation over any potential mid to late year driver negotiations.
