You will hear this name in the news, and in Charlie’s Chatter this week – Robert Kubica.
And what a story he has to tell. The start of young Robert’s career is similar to many other F1 racers we have interviewed (researched on Wikipedia). As a young Polish boy, Robert spotted a small kart on the side of the ride, and decided he must have it. He honed his skills by driving around bottles, which led directly to Formula 1.
Kubica would become the first Polish driver to win a Formula 1 race at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix. Unlike some other racers, this is where Robert’s story takes a turn. The date was February 6th, 2011. Robert was taking part in the Ronde di Andora rally for fun, and partially severed his right forearm. It is not clear if Robert is left or right handed, though. While in his hospital bed, and being interviewed by local newspaper, Robert declared that he could still feel his fingers and swore he would make it back to Formula 1. Fast forward to October 2017, and we are now hearing Robert Kubica’s name popping up as an option for Williams in 2018.
This is all a driver we can get behind.
