Former BMW and Renault F1 star Robert Kubica crashed out of the San Martino di Castrozza Rally on Saturday.
The Pole, who has had to endure an 18-month lay-off following serious injuries sustained in a rallying accident in Italy prior to the start of the 2011 F1 season, went off the road in his Subaru Impreza WRC in the second test and came to rest in some trees. Organisers later confirmed that Kubica and co-driver Jakub Gerber both escaped unharmed. The car, however, was badly damaged, and he will not be able to re-start today.
It was his second outing in less than a week, after he won the Ronde Gomitolo di Lana rally last weekend. To see video footage from that event - CLICK HERE
