Looks like one of my favorite drivers was injured in a rally accident yesterday. Robert Kubica has several injuries from the wreck. He’s also gone under surgery. For a while today a rumor was circulating that he had to have his hand amputated. But the doctors saved the hand and he’s somewhat fine now. But there is also the factor that because of his injuries he might be sidelined for the entire 2011 season. Hope not, this guy is awesome. Not to mention, he’s also Polish!
I am certainly glad Lotus and Renault decided to combine powers for Formula 1 this year. I was even more excited when they brought back the black and gold livery. The John Player Special color scheme was indeed the single most bad ass livery you could ever get. RIP Colin Chapman. Hopefully his spirit lives on with the team right now. With a good driver, Robert Kubica, and a decent driver, Vitaly Petrov, they’ll both share some podiums in the season.
