Hamilton: Robert is one of the most talented drivers
Speaking in 2019, Lewis Hamilton shared his admiration for the Pole, whose return to the F1 grid goes down as one of the most inspirational tales in the sport’s history.
“I've known Robert the longest, we started racing each other in go-karts in 1998 - for me, Robert is one of the most talented drivers that I've competed against.
“From the beginning, I already saw the talent that he had. I think what's really remarkable is the strength and the determination he's shown to get through the incident he had.
“Not a lot of people can come from those kinds of circumstances and make it back into the sport and deliver against others who don't have the same situation as him.
"It's definitely not the same scenario as when he was in a competitive team back in the day but I think he's done great this year.”
He may not have enjoyed the success he wanted to in the sport, but Kubica’s performances at both BMW Sauber and Renault between 2006 and 2010 will be remembered as a true display of what a fine talent he was.
