Kubica in Italian rally return

RETURN TO F1 POSSIBLE?: Robert Kubica sits behind the wheel of his Subaru Impreza at the Ronde Gomitolo di Landa rally. Will Kubica return to Formula 1 in the near future?

BIELLA, Italy, Biella - Robert Kubica has enjoyed a dream return to motorsport competition by winning the Ronde Gomitolo di Landa rally in Italy.

Wearing a bandage on his right forearm that masked the most serious scars of his F1 career-ending rally crash of 19 months ago, Italian reports said Kubica took his Subaru Impreza to victory in all four time-trials.

FULL MOBILITY MISSING

Driver Agencia Estado said the first real public appearance since his crash also revealed the true extent of Kubica's new limitations.

The former BMW and Renault driver "does not have full mobility of his right arm", said the report.

Indeed, footage of the minor Italian rally shows that while Kubica is able to steer a car with both hands, the movement in his right arm and hand is obviously limited.

He held the winning trophy and champagne aloft, and drank water from a bottle, only with his left arm.
