Robert Kubica got behind the wheel of a Mercedes DTM German Touring car on Thursday at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia, Spain, almost two years after he was nearly killed in a crash in the Ronde di Andora rally in Italy.
Almost two years ago, Robert Kubica was nearly killed in a crash.
The Polish driver had his right hand partially severed and fractured his elbow, shoulder and leg in the accident in the Ronde di Andora rally in Italy.
On Thursday he got back behind the wheel – to test drive a Mercedes DTM German Touring car at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia.
Robert Kubica “Well I’m quite ok, actually I’m feeling much better than the last two years, but of course before (my) accident I was feeling… I was in better shape, that’s for sure. I have big injuries so there is still a long way to go for my health and my body, but yeah slowly it’s getting better. Of course it needed time and definitely it’s a long, long way to go and hard work. But yeah it’s already a good point to be here and be able to test here in Valencia, you know after two years ago, nearly two years ago I was here with F1, today here I’m with DTM. Of course I would prefer to be here in an F1 car, but you know, you have to do small step, step by step, and maybe one day I will get the chance and the opportunity to drive again an F1 car here, or here in Valencia or in general.”
It seems Kubica is heading in the right direction, on the road to recovery.
