Robert Kubica has a limp handshake
This surprised me for a couple of seconds. And then I remembered why. It's two years since the accident that nearly severed his right arm. I sat down with him for 15 minutes. He's surprisingly garrulous when you get him going: hasn't fully given up on F1, but the problem is not being able to rotate/leverage his wrist and arm in the confines of an F1 cockpit, ‘Monaco would be impossible for me at the moment'. He tested a DTM car earlier this year, but having won the WRC2 championship this year, I think he'd properly focus on rallying if he got a top line drive. He didn't do himself many favours by crashing out on Friday, then again on Saturday...
