Ok, a very close source confirms it was a co-driver's error.

Kubica said he sees his future on the track and F1 is his priority :)
yet he'll make the decision by the end of the year.

Track is better than rally. I'm glad he is ok.

Robert Kubica has ruled out an imminent return to Formula 1, explaining that he is still struggling with the rotation of his right elbow and wrist. The Pole, who suffered life-threatening injuries in a rally crash in early 2011, has been back on the motorsport scene recently, picking up a popular Rallye du Var victory last month.

The 28-year-old says he misses the feeling of lining up on the Formula 1 grid, but at the same time is pleased with how he has recovered from such a serious accident.


"Let's just say I miss racing," Kubica told AutoWeek. "This is my biggest problem. When I'm busy rallying or testing, I'm not thinking about it. But when I'm at home on a Sunday after a Formula 1 race, I think I'm living a boring and monotonous life.

"On the other hand, you cannot get everything you desire out of life. I'm happy about where I am today. I need to keep working, keep fighting. I'm getting better, but you need a lot of time to fully recover from something like this."

When pushed about a potential return to Formula 1 in the future, Kubica admitted that his arm will be the deciding factor.

"If I can move my arm again, there is a chance that I will return," he added. "But until that happens, we'll have to see. There's no chance of me coming back to F1 soon."

Kubica is currently negotiating with WRC teams over a possible drive in 2014, but has made it clear that he wants to sign a long-term deal to fully develop his skills.

Robert not only is winning the Rally, but overloaded the FIA ERC servers as well xD

"Due to exceptional demand the ERC website server has failed. We are switching servers to be back on track as soon as possible. We apologise for the inconvenience.."

Kubica has dominated the first stages of the rally. He was 11s and 23s faster than anyone else in very tricky, wet conditions.

New car, new co-pilot, new rally and despite all this he is still the fastest.

The competitors are shaking their heads in amazement and wondering what has just happened 8O

Amazing. F1's loss is proving to be Rally's gain.

Found this comment on another forum. I think it pretty much sums it up:

This must be shock for Kopecky and Breen. All the previous Kopecky's results and successes are worth nothing when I see the situation on this rally. Rally driver with so much experience, with factory support and be suddenly beaten by half disabled driver with 0 experience, new codriver, new car....humiliation on the whole line.

:D

I noticed the rally conversation faded quite a lot...
