Renault still in dark on Kubica’s return

Renault team principal Eric Boullier admits he is still no nearer to discovering when Robert Kubica will be able to return to the wheel of a Formula One car.

Kubica, who required five operations following a serious rallying accident in February, has been making steady progress but crucially still lacks strength in his right arm.

The Pole's manager Daniele Morelli recently confirmed Kubica would step up his rehabilitation by getting back behind the wheel of either a road car or simulator, but Boullier has revealed he has not yet been given any indication of when a return to the cockpit is likely.

“We have to assess options and we are still waiting for Robert to come back to us to say he can test,” said Boullier.
