Terrible news. Get well soon Robert.

You could quite justifiably bring in to question the wisdom of teams allowing drivers to indulge in such risk averse extra - curricular activities (Webber).

It was looking very promising for Renault and Robert this year, now he looks out for half a season at the least if not longer. What a blow!

A friend sent me a link from the BBC website. Also have been looking at other F1 pages. So far reports indicated that Kubica had suffered fractures on his left arm and leg. Looks like he may be out for half a year. Still lets hope for the best.

Read on Autosport that according to bosses at Renault, Senna based on his greater experience of contemporary F1 cars is a shoe - in.

Seems the best decision here - and a massive opportunity for him to revive his career.

Heard that the hospital is postponing their press conference..... Serious rumours in the press in Germany about very heavy damage to the left hand (including nerves), possible amputation necessary.

We might not see him back in F1 again. That serious.
