Robert Kubica hasn’t fully recovered yet from the horrific rally crash that he suffered two years ago but is well on his way to getting back to the annals of motorsport.

Last year, the Pole participated in a few minor rallies and even won a couple of them with the progress convincing Mercedes to give him an opportunity to test its DTM car this week in Valencia, Spain.

"We all obviously like Robert, he's a very special chap and what we want to do with Mercedes-Benz is give him a chance doing a proper test in a proper race car and seeing how he goes on and how he feels," newly-appointed Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff was quoted saying by Reuters. “He's very much looking forward to it and he's very excited. Let's see how it goes."

The Austrian added that although Kubica’s return to Formula 1 was much awaited it was however “definitely too early at this stage" considering the 28-year-old’s current physical disadvantage.

"If the DTM test goes well and we see that he is doing well in a proper race car with downforce, I think there are still some physical constraints to drive a monocoque (single-seater) chassis with his elbow and arm," Wolff explained.
