Kubica: between accident and the media
Yesterday, Robert Kubica got seriously hurt during a rally that took place in Italy. Very
quickly, a question emerged naturally: is the evolution of professionalism in F1 not forcing –
unfortunately – drivers to focus on F1 only? Should drivers – if we have to distinguish
between drivers that are motivated by passion and money – bracket what drive them, i.e. their
essence to focus on F1?
To tell you the truth, I don’t know to answer to that. Whether you like Kubica or not, it is
always good to see that kind of drivers enjoy driving in other disciplines. Eric Boullier also
summed up very well this thing with his declaration: “Rally driving is vital for Robert and his
state of mind – we know the risks and so does he. We don't want a robot or corporate driver.”
Some take F1 as a job, and those are increasing. Yet, there remains passionate drivers that
love to race, even without always being able to win. In the past, drivers took part in far more
disciplines, with greater risks, and everyone liked the heterogeneous talents that had fun. This
aspect that Kubica had was not that much put on the headlines, but it made him more humane
compared to other drivers.
So it is true that this kind of drivers were there where people knew more about the risks of the
job, or even simply the sport. Customs change with time. Fate still exists, and the risks of
accident are as much present at home as on track. F1’s world is already stressful enough, so
let drivers live.
In the meantime, one week is required to know more on Robert Kubica’s unavailability, even
though it seems now established that all or half of the 2011 season will be missed by the Pole
driver. Let’s wait and see what decision Lotus Renault GP takes.
To conclude, let’s give a big red card to certain web “media” that were totally indecent,
announcing anything. One should not play for increasing the number of viewers with drivers’
