Boullier visits Kubica

Robert Kubica gets a visit from Renault team boss Eric Boullier following the Turkish Grand Prix
Team boss Eric Boullier has again said that Robert Kubica is still 'very much part of the Lotus Renault GP family' after visiting the Polish driver following the Turkish Grand Prix.

Boullier headed to Italy to spend time with Kubica after the Istanbul race as he continues to recover from the injuries he sustained in his rallying accident in February.

Doctors have said that Kubica is now through the first stage of his recovery and will undergo more intensive rehabilitation in the coming weeks and months, with a number of small operations also planned.

Kubica underwent one of those operations today [Tuesday], with Renault revealing it went 'according to plan'.

“Robert has made another step forward in his rehabilitation process and doctors are pleasantly surprised by the way in which his condition is improving,” Boullier said. ”Now, it is a matter of time and even if patience isn't Robert's first quality, he is fully aware that rehabilitation could be quite a long process.

“We spoke about the latest developments of the car and of the team, and he was also interested to hear more on the details of the R31, tyres and strategies. Robert is still very much involved, keeping in touch with his engineers, and we have been keeping him informed of every important decision the team has taken.

“He may not be with us all of the time this year, but he's very much a part of the Lotus Renault GP family."
