Kubica sidelined by crash


Motor Sport wishes Robert Kubica an extremely fast recovery from his terrible crash on the Ronde di Andora rally on Sunday.


The Lotus Renault driver’s accident occurred a few kilometres into the event when it is reported his Skoda Fabia hit a wall and a length of crash barrier penetrated the car. It left him with multiple fractures to his right leg and arm as well as cuts to his forearm and – most worryingly – his right hand, which was partially severed.

The Pole is currently in a ‘stable but serious’ condition in the Santa Corona Hospital in Pietra Ligure, Italy, and doctors are not sure whether he will race again in 2011. He has undergone a seven-hour operation on his hand, which according to doctors still retained heat afterwards, giving them hope that he will have full use of it once he has recovered.

Kubica’s co-driver Jakub Gerber was unhurt in the crash.
