The star of the show, or the enemy within? Whichever way you look at it, 2008 was a pretty remarkable season for Robert Kubica.
The Pole enjoyed the best of times to get his career firmly back on track after a difficult 2007 campaign. But he endured untold behind-the-scenes frustration that he was unable to achieve goals he thought could be attained by his BMW Sauber team.
And it was ironic that the turning point of his season, the very moment when he and his bosses achieved their season ambition of winning a race in Canada, was also when the joy turned to frustration. For while many within the camp were celebrating that crazy afternoon in Montreal, satisfied with a job well done, Kubica was getting more and more aggravated by what he saw.
