Polish F1 driver Robert Kubica won the first race he entered after 20 months of being in and out of hospitals following a near-death crash. That's amazing.
You might not know Kubica's name. He's most famous for a shocking crash at Canada in 2007, not for his sole F1 victory there the next year. In February 2011, he crashed a rally car into a guardrail at high speed, nearly severing his arm. He was stuck in the car for over an hour and has since spent 20 months in and out of various hospitals. This kind of crash can easily prove fatal.
