2pac. the reports say that it was an existing, reinforced break, that re-opened. in other words, the bones still had not knit. now THAT is worrying, after so long.

but after a serious break, osteoporosis can set in, so his good bones may well be far more susceptible to future damage.

Extremely unfortunate and as much as I hate to say it, looks like this is the beginning of the end. I sincerely hope I'm wrong though.....

Very unfortunate. Drivers in the past that have tried to make a comeback have not done so well. The man is now fragile and any little bump will cause more setbacks. One driver that comes to mind is Kenny Brack.

yes, richard either way it doesn't sound as if his prospects of making a F1 come-back are good.

@koeiekut, I don't know of any MotoGP rider that has come back from an almost completely severed hand and various bone breaks down one side of the body caused by impact. what kubica is attempting to recover from is a very serious set of injuries.

Italian press reported that Robert already had an operation on Friday to strengthen the area of the fracture. Plates/screws or pins with external rods supposedly were the choices. A lot of speculations but Robert's manager is not saying much.
