I wish him all the best, and would like to see him come back to his former level, but I wonder if he'll ever regain the dexterity you need to operate an F1 steering wheel again. I remember seeing some on-board footage once of Robert driving the BMW. For an entire lap, his fingers never rested, he was shifting, turning dials, pressing buttons, etc. The amount of activity was incredible, and that was a few years ago. I would imagine it gets harder every year.

I think we just need to wait and see what he can do. If there was permanent nerve damage, I fear his F1 career could be finished.
