Robert Kubica's comeback could be at the wheel of a turbocharged 2010 Ferrari, according to reports in the Italian media.

It emerged this week that, despite the recent setback of a re-broken leg after an icy fall, the Pole could be only months away from attempting some laps in a F1 simulator.

As for his track return, it is rumoured Ferrari sees Kubica as a potential test driver, with a view to ultimately becoming Fernando Alonso's teammate.

The new Italian reports say a private test at Fiorano in June or July at the wheel of a two-year old Ferrari equipped with the marque's 2014-specification turbo V6 prototype has been set as a tentative target.

The same reports suggest some sort of agreement may have been signed.

The unknown factor is the final phase of Kubica's recovery, with the 27-year-old believed to be still unable to fully rotate his right arm that was almost severed in his rally crash last February.
