Alonso's New Helmet & Kubica's Dream Shattered

A record is always a record and it has to be celebrated. Fernando Alonso today showed his Twitter followers the special livery that will adorn his crash helmet for the coming Indian Grand Prix, scheduled for the Greater Noida circuit this weekend. In full view there is obviously the number 1571, the total points the Spanish driver has won in his career, accompanied by the words: “F1 Points World Record”. There is also a thank you to his fans in three languages (English, French and Italian), all on top of an unusual white background. Maybe, as all Ferrari’s tifosi hope, that the total can go even higher as soon as next Sunday, ideally by another 25 points!

In other news Ferrari F1 boss Stephano Domenicali says "We were keeping an eye on him. Unfortunately I don't think he will be back. With his physical problem, he would struggle in certain situations which require reactivity. It's a shame."

Ferrari have been following his recovery as he competes for top placings in the World Rally Championship.

Kubica himself has said that he believes he could drive a Formula One car at certain circuits. At others he could not because of the limited movement in his right arm, which was partially severed in the horrendous rallying accident in February 2011. He still believes he could make a return to the top echelon of motor sport but the Ferrari remarks are a bit undermining. Perhaps, one day soon, another team might show an interest or maybe there’s a future in sports cars. Who knows? In the meantime support Kubica at the WRC in Wales next month.
