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.

Technical Director of Red Bull Adrian Newey told about what is happening in a closed Park after the finish.Adrian Newey "After the finish of the race cars are checked for compliance with the regulations. Then within the hour they are in the closed Park, and during that time any team has the opportunity to file a protest. It's time for backstage games.Some engineers, like me, have the opportunity to see the cars of your rivals. Naturally, the mechanics, seeing the engineer from the other team, immediately begin to crowd near his car, to hide their new products. Ferrari, for example, formed a beehive every time I come near their car.But we found an original way to look. I'm beginning to see details that do not interest me, and the mechanics here are also near them, and at this time our photographer takes all that is left open, what interests us the most.This part of the game. I always wait until the end of the race to see the cars of your opponents".
