ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – Robert Kubica's return to Formule One is something of a relief for world champion Lewis Hamilton.

The 33-year-old Kubica has announced on Thursday that he will ride the Williams team in the coming year, a remarkable compact discipline of Kubica has lost its right hand in a rally crash in 2011.

"Is Robert older than me?" Hamilton joked at a news conference.

When informed Kubica is even older than Hamilton, one month Hamilton has an anxiety.

"I'm so glad he'll come back, I'll be the second oldest sender, but now I'll be the third," said Hamilton. "I can not tell you how to do it."

On a serious note, the fifth turn of his father's victory was Kubica, an old retreat of back.

"I advised Robert of carding days, he was one of the talented cyclists who had the fun of races," said Hamilton. "He had the last couple of years really good time and it's great that he got the opportunity." I hope he works hard on his strength and his spirit in collaboration is exciting for the sport to do it back in action. "

Kubica will be the second oldest on the grille over the next year after the 37-year-old Fernando Alonso from the F1 to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Sunday after the 39-year-old Kimi Raikkonen.

Alonso, two times F1 champion, called Kubica "one of the great talent."

He gave a note of caution.

"It remains to be seen what will be the appearance of the car and its own performance," said Alonso. "But if he is 100 percent, he will be great to see."

It completes a remarkable compass for Kubica, evaluated as one of the fastest in F1, before a gray rally crashed in 2011 to let him operate seven hours in a partial right hand.

"At the season of the F1-gray, the next season will be back one of the greatest achievements of my life," said Kubica. "I can not wait to run back."

Kubica lost in Williams' trial for last year and was a reserve and developer this year. One of the main questions regarding his return trip was how Kubica's fragile right arm could handle the warfare of a heavy car.

These questions were answered when he had a straightforward rehabilitation program with success.

"I want to thank everyone who has helped me in the height of a lifetime of my life over these last years," said Kubica. "It was a challenging trip to return to the Formula One grid, but what was almost impossible now."

Kubica earned from 2006-10 12 podiums in F1 – in # 39; the first pole position and victory in 2008 – and was considered among the most brilliant talents.

Kubica won the Canadian GP drive for BMW Sauber to the second place at the Monaco GP. Those performances moved him close to Ferrari and a better titled sheet.

Now he is just happy that he can return to F1.
