Robert Kubica has been moved out of intensive care following a third operation on the injuries he sustained in an accident on the Ronde di Andora rally nearly a fortnight ago.
The Pole suffered multiple injuries in the accident, including a partially severed right hand, and went under the knife for the third time on Wednesday for treatment on his elbow.
Kubica is now set to be moved to a rehabilitation department for the next fortnight to continue his recovery and will undergo extensive physiotherapy in an effort to regain his fitness.
"Robert Kubica's state of health is currently satisfactory,” a statement from the Santa Corona hospital read. "It probably won't be necessary to undergo more surgery."
Kubica's Renault team meanwhile said the 26-year-old was making good progress.
“Following the recent surgery to his elbow on Wednesday, Robert continues to recover well at Santa Corona Hospital,” the team said. “The latest news is that he is due to be transferred from intensive care unit to the rehabilitation department to continue his recovery. The teams that performed the surgery will still be looking after him.”
