The former BMW and Renault driver suffered horror injuries in a rally crash more than a year ago, but there are reports he might be well enough to return some time in 2012.

A close friend of the now 27-year-old said in the Barcelona paddock: "Robert is close to leading a normal life.

"He drives his road car and goes out by himself," the friend, who wished to remain anonymous, told the BBC.

"He is still building up the strength in his right arm. It will be June or July before it can be determined if he is fit enough to test a F1 car."
