Kubica admits to limitations, but not 'driving with one hand'

While admitting to certain physical limitations, Robert Kubica discarded the ridiculous suggestion that he was driving with one hand.

As he continues his attempts at a sensational comeback to the pinnacle of motorsport, Kubica ran 100 trouble-free laps with Williams at Yas Marina on Tuesday.

The Grove-based outfit is still in the process of assessing the Pole as it ponders his inclusion in next year's driver line-up.

"There is someone saying I’m driving one-handed, I’m not driving one-handed," said Kubica.

"I think it’s impossible to drive a Formula 1 car with one hand.

"But I have some limitations so in some way my body used some compensations, which is not wrong.

"We are human beings and our brains are used to help our bodies overcome disabilities. This is normal daily life.

"This is something I think I’m on top of."

The Pole has spared no effort this year to return to his best possible form and prove his ability to race at the highest level.

"Physically I think I have done a great work, good work in the last six months," he said.

"It hasn’t been easy, it was not like I have been lying in my bed.

"Probably I’m in physically in my best shape, by far a better shape than I was when I was racing in 2010. So motivation is there and the body is reacting in a good way.

"Of course, I’m starting nearly from scratch because Formula 1 has changed so much in the last seven years that it’s like nearly starting from zero.

"But my experience which I gained in the years I was racing in Formula 1 helped me to get on top of the learning process quicker than it used to be in the past."

Kubica will be back behind the wheel tomorrow afternoon after Russian driver Sergey Sirotkin's test for Williams.
