The remarkable qualities that propelled Kubica’s F1 comeback

It’s easy to look at Robert Kubica’s second Formula 1 career and feel a sense of sadness that he didn’t reach the heights for which he seemed destined. But as Ben Anderson discovered, performance and results are almost meaningless in this context – something more fundamental and incredible happened…

It is difficult to fully appreciate exactly what Robert Kubica has been through during the past decade, until you spend time talking to him. 
And even then, even with the most sympathetic ear, you cannot really know how he did it – how this man dragged himself from the depths of despair back onto the Formula 1 circuit.

The only person who really does know is Kubica himself – a fact that becomes stark as he reflects, with refreshing candour, on the remarkable journey he’s undertaken since the 2011 rally accident that stalled an enormously promising racing career, and almost ended his life.
