In 2010 Robert Kubica was the driver you could rely on to get everything out of the car and make no errors. He managed to score three podiums that year in what was 4th or 5th fastest car. It’s likely he would’ve got something similar in terms of podiums in 2011 as well, had he not had the injury, but I’m wondering about this year.
The E20 clearly has the pace to win races. Kimi Raikkonen, as incredibly talented as he is, needs/needed time to get used to F1 2012. Romain Grosjean is a very talented driver as well, but he lacks experience. With Kubica there’d also be continuity in the team, which is much better for car design/development.
So I’m interesting in opinions on this: Had he not had the injury last year, would have Robert Kubica won a race so far this season in the Lotus?
