According to Scuderia Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali, Robert Kubica's days of Formula One are over. You'll recall that Kubica, the former BMW Sauber and Lotus Renault ace was injured on a stage of the Ronde di Andora rally in a Skoda Fabia S2000, when he lost control and the car was impaled by a guard rail.

Kubica's injuries made his return to racing of any form questionable, although just one week ago, it was announced he'd be moving up to the top rung of the World Rally Championship with Citroën. Still, it was hoped that the talented Polish driver would eventually return to open-wheel racing.

But when asked during an interview published on Scuderia Ferrari's website whether he thought Kubica would come back to F1 and join Ferrari, a rumored move before his accident, Domenicali said, "Yes, we are keeping an eye on him. Unfortunately, I don't think he will be back, because with his physical problem, he would struggle in certain limited situations which require reactivity. It's a shame."

Even before the now-public doubts of Domenicali, Kubica hasn't doubted he can return and be competitive in F1, according to BBC Sport. But with the severe damage to his right arm, which was partially amputated in the accident, and the limited movement he still suffers from, one has to wonder if the head of the Scuderia might just be right.
