KUBICA: “KIMI IS STILL ONE OF THE BEST DRIVERS IN FORMULA 1”
Robert Kubica has hailed Kimi Raikkonen as one of Formula 1’s best drivers despite his age.
The Pole, Williams’ driver, made his long-awaited return in Formula 1 this season.
Robert Kubica shared his thoughts on Kimi Räikkönen:
“Kimi is still one of the best driver in Formula 1 even though he has some age now. He has been a bit unlucky this season but he’s still good.”“I would like to be Kimi’s team-mate, he is a bit special but I like his lifestyle. He would be one of the best team-mates what you could have.”
Kubica was tipped as a future world champion during his first stint in F1 in which he claimed 12 podium finishes and won the 2008 Canadian GP.
But a one-off participation in the 2011 Ronde di Andora rally dramatically changed the course of his career as he crashed into a church wall and suffered extensive damage to his right hand, arm and leg. He underwent several hours of surgery and suffered a partial amputation of his forearm.
