Wanted to point out couple of points on the Kubica statement. First of all it points out that "Robert Kubica to miss start of the 2012 season". Having said that I assume that if he is able to drive we may see him in Friday appearances in order to get the rhythm and the 2012 changes on all the car features. Next point is "Of course, Robert will remain a member of the LRGP family in 2012 and he is already, through his management, holding talks about renewing his contract for the following season." So they are about to extend his contract and putting a dot at the Ferrari (and probably not only Ferraris) wish to have a car ready and test him out.
And finally "Lotus Renault GP will start assessing its options and will evaluate the most suitable candidate to drive from the first 2012 winter testing session". So Petrov’s seat is in no threat.
