Pundits applaud Kubica's F1 comeback at the Australian GP

Formula 1: Daniel Ricciardo unveils striking new race helmet

Daniel Ricciardo unveils stunning new race helmet colours for 2019 season

Kubica suffered a partially severed right arm and fractures in his elbow, shoulder and leg in a rally collision in 2011.

Formula One is back! its back for another cracking season beginning, as usual, at the Australian Grand Prix. He won the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix and could have raced for Ferrari soon after. Williams has modified his auto this year to cater for his predominantly left-handed steering.

The message of going against the grain is in line with Ricciardo's move, which he committed to mid-way through last season - the decision surprised many in the paddock and has been viewed by some as a step backwards due to Renault's position below Red Bull in the pecking order, although the Australian driver says he has a belief in the team's long-term ambitions to return to championship glory.

There were multiple take backs from the press conference.

"It's awesome to see him back".

"It's just a testament to his character and I won't ask for everyone to applaud but really I think it's awesome for him to be here".

Kubica is partnered with British rookie George Russell in the Williams for this campaign, and joked that he had enjoyed a longer winter break than most. He said: 'I haven't had a lot of time to think about my emotions, I've been focused on the job, focused on the things to do. The beginning of the season didn't go well, as we were greeted with a bad news of the passing away of long time F1 Race Director, Charlie Whiting. "You are focused on the job and learn as much as you can about the new F1 and trying to be ready", said Kubica per the Daily Mail.

"We didn't have a flawless start for winter testing, so there are a lot of things to be checked".

"There is no point of wasting energy and time and thinking of hard moments, we just need to do our job".
