Robert Kubica has admitted that his greatest sporting hero is none other than Britain’s Ronnie “the Rocket” O’Sullivan.
I think this is a smart move from a PR point of view. Usually drivers admire other drivers and that’s tricky. The press always draw you into making slighly queasy comparisons with your hero – from last year Lewis talking about Senna comes to mind.
But it’s probably just true. Just because you like racing doesn’t make you like watching racing. And this information makes me like Kubida even more.
