One-handed Kubica hopes for F1 return

A 2011 crash left Robert Kubica relying on one hand. At a big disadvantage, he hopes for a return to F1.

    Former Formula One driver Robert Kubica spent nearly three months in hospital after a rallying accident left him severely injured in 2011.

    He missed the entire F1 season and was replaced by Nick Heidfeld at Renault.

    Kubica is currently competing in the World Rally Championship despite being at a huge disadvantage of effectively driving one-handed.

    Lee Wellings caught up with Kubica who talks about what he went through following the crash and how he hopes for a return to Formula One.
