F1: No DTM For Kubica

Despite achieving some credible performances in testing and also a quite remarkable return to rallying, its looks like Robert Kubica won't be tackling a full season in the DTM championship this year.

Many, myself included, were hopeful that Kubica's rehabilitation from the rallying crash which severed his forearm would continue with a full season of DTM, before making a step back into F1. I'm not sure what made Mercedes decide to leave the Pole out of its line-up for 2013, especially as pre-season testing seemed to have gone very well.

Whatever the reason for the decision its a disappointment for everyone hoping to see Kubica back in a competitive race car and doing what he does best.
