A Pole from the South of Poland, a legend in Kraków, where he was born 33 years ago. The man, the skills, his right arm. He nearly lost it, his arm I mean, when he crashed on the first stage of the Andora rally, at the wheel of a Super 2000 Škoda Fabia.
Kubica cut his teeth racing just about anything just about anywhere, winning races in the process, including the 1999 Monaco Kart Cup where he came first leaving Paul Di Resta and Lewis Hamilton, yes, behind. Then, finally, his F1 debut in 2006, at the Hungaroring. Since then, Kubica entered 76 GPs for BMW Sauber and Sauber with 12 podiums and 1 win, in Canada in 2008. Now, having fully recovered from this terrible accident which happened 8 years ago, Robert will finally return to F1, racing for Williams in the next season.
