Robert KubicaAs reported on Auto123.com

While we have the likes of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen to carry us through after Schumacher leaves, there is another name on everyone’s lips after Polish racer Robert Kubica finished the Italian Grand Prix third in his only third race.

Despite Kubica’s lack of experience, he did everything right in Italy while his more experienced rivals made mistakes including his teammate Nick Heidfeld, who out-accelerated Michael Schumacher at the start to take second place, but then, as they went into the first corner, he switched to the inside line where there was a lot less grip.

When compared to other rookie that start this year, Nico Rosberg, Robert Kubica definately looks the future of Formula 1.

For Kubica’s hold the advantage of a complete package [car, team & personal performance], compared to Nico Rosberg [taking nothing away from his personal performance] who, we think, got hampered by lack of progress at Williams. Also the hype created during Rosberg’s initial races did a little harm to him, compared to a very quiet launch of Kubica and he proved his credentials directly on the circuit.

    Watch out for Hiekki next season, he has a major car advantage over the other rookies. I hope he can challenge for the championship next year but I doubt it… 2008 will probably be the year he will put up a full fledged attempt at the WDC.

    Kubica has definately put the package to great use and I hope he has the car that can propel him to the top of f1 in the near future.

    It’s going to take a while for Nico to be the next F1 star… I know he’s GP2 champion and all that but so far, his F1 debut season has been desastrous. But just take a look at Kubica, this guy is going to be big. Three F1 races and he already scored a podium! I think that’s incredible and yes, many people didn’t think that BMW and Williams couldn’t work apart but BMW is the best by far.
