Kubica F1 comeback possible, says Zanardi


In light of Robert Kubica's with Renault at Valencia this week, Alex Zanardi believes the Polish driver could possibly return to Formula 1.

Zanardi is a man who knows all about bouncing back in the face of physical adversity. The 50-year-old was at the peak of his career in IndyCar in 2001 when a horrific crash at the Lausitzring led to the amputation of both his legs.

Undeterred, Zanardi eventually returned to racing, winning in touring cars before focusing on paralympic cycling and clinching gold medals in the London Paralympics in 2012.

"I read that he did more than 100 laps, so he would be able to make a return to the sport," Zanardi told the Corriere della Sport, commenting on Kubica's F1 test.

"And in my opinion, it was not a random thing that Renault let him test the car.

"I hope he does (return), because he is a very good driver, a very good person, a very nice guy, and it would of course be a great story," Zanardi added.
