Robert Kubica's manager has said that there is a chance that he could return to racing at the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix.

Kubica has been recovering from a rally accident in Italy back in February which left him with life threatening injuries. He currently spends three days a week in Genoa undergoing rehabilitation as he works to restore full functionality to his right hand, which was partially severed in the crash. Daniel Morelli said that the leg which was fractured is no longer an issue, but that it was the hand which would dictate any comeback.

"Recovery is progressing positively," Morelli told Gazzetta dello Sport. "The right leg is fine: if that was the problem, then Robert would practically be ready. No, that's not our worry. The Italian GP is held in September, so it's in just three months' time, but we can think about the final race of the season.

"In any case, when Robert gets in the simulator, he'll immediately understand whether he's able to come back, how and when, without the need of a stop-watch."
