Since no medical information can ever be divulged without the patients express consent, however these are the facts as I see them.
The bold part is important. In the future, please stress it out. I'm not saying that what you write surely isn't true, but unless you're Robert's doctor you shouldn't present your opinions as if they were facts. You simply don't know in detail which nerves and tendons were injured to what extent etc. Unless you're Robert's doctor
Such posts are simply misleading for people who don't follow the situation closely. TBH when someone asks about it you should also include the "official" information.
It was said (both by Robert and his doctors) that he will never be 100% fit. It should be obvious for everyone. But also they were / are saying that a F1 return can't be ruled out at the moment. Robert clearly said that he isn't able to drive single seaters at the moment, but as I previously wrote he said it's down to elbow mobility. I think an F1 driver knows what he is saying.
Elbow function is not as critical since mormal shoulder and wrist function could compensate for this.
There's not enough room in the cockpit to compensate, that's the issue. Some possible limitations to wrist movement don't help either.
Anyway, maybe we should focus on what will be going on in the near future. I can't wait for the information on what Robert plans to do this year. Especially that I'm a rally fan.
