Kubica out of intensive care

Robert Kubica released from intensive care in Italy
Robert Kubica has been released from intensive care and moved to a trauma unit in an Italian hospital as he continues to recover from the injuries he sustained in his high-speed rallying accident at the weekend.

The Lotus Renault GP driver was lucky to escape with his life after a crash barrier penetrated the cockpit of his Skoda Fabia S2000 following the accident, although the Pole was left with injuries to his right leg and arm, and suffered a partially severed right hand.

Kubica underwent surgery on Sunday after arriving at hospital and is now set to undergo further operations on Friday and early next week.

“His general condition is good, so much so we can programme two operations on Friday,” Dr Giorgio Barabino was quoted by the BBC. “Next week we expect to perform the last operation on the patient.”

News of Kubica's continued progress comes as Renault evaluates its options when it comes to replacing him behind the wheel of the new R31, with Nick Heidfeld, Bruno Senna and Tonio Liuzzi being the three drivers in contention to act as substitute for the Pole [See separate story HERE].
