Robert Kubica was applauded by his fellow Formula 1 drivers as he faced the media ahead of his return to the grid after more than eight years away. Daniel Ricciardo led Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, as well as attending media, in a tribute to Kubica, who will race this weekend for the first time since suffering life-altering injuries in a 2011 rally crash.
