Jacques Villeneuve does not believe in the return of Kubica

Champion 1997 Jacques Villeneuve has questioned the ability of Robert Kubica successfully return to Formula 1 next year.Jacques Villeneuve "we are Talking not only about the upcoming tests, when he will have to get out of the car with a set of Halo that is already difficult enough for a guy.How about the start of the race, when he will have to sharply deviate from other machines I doubt he can do it with one hand. From my own experience I know that it is almost impossible.I think the FIA need to think carefully about whether to allow the race pilot with an injury or not. He can initiate accidents. Kubica himself also need to think carefully about whether he wants this.It is not about playing cards, he is responsible to his colleagues. The same applies to Williams. If there is a serious accident, the responsibility will be very great."Informed negatively about the idea of the return of Kubica spoke ex-pilot Williams Juan Pablo Montoya and former technical Director of the British team Patrick head.
