    Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    Robert Kubica has been seriously injured in a Rally crash, while taking place at the Ronde di Andora Rally in Italy in a Skoda Fabia S2000. The Pole crashed into a church wall and had to be cut free from his car and air-lifted to the hospital. Kubica is said to have suffered a wrist fracture of his left hand as well as injuries to his left leg. Smiley

    That's just the last thing he needs before the last few testing sessions and the start of the F1 season

     Appereantly his right hand is in bad shape.. Hope he has a full recovery!


    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    Robert Kubica has completed a seven hour operation under Italian hand surgery specialist Prof Igor Rossello, but it will be some time before his true condition becomes clear.

    “We have to wait at least a week to see if his hand survives,” Rossello told Italian media, apparently adding that it could take a year for the Pole to be able to use his right arm again.

    Rossello, a specialist from the nearly San Paulo Hospital in Savona, was joined by Renault’s own doctor, Riccardo Ceccarelli.

    Kubica underwent bone reconstruction before the doctors attended to tissue damage.



    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    Quite some news... I do hope that he gets well soon, he was one of the characterful individuals in Formula 1.


    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    Oh no, poor guy, this is terrible. my thoughts are with him and hopefully he made a quick recovery. Sounds pretty serious and the timing given the start of the 2011 season is just around the corner.

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    I've read somewhere that he might never be fit to come back to racing, because he's already got metal bolts in the same arm from a previous accident.

    His hand must have been close to amputation and will most certainly take several months to be cured. I do not expect him on the grid until the second half of the season at the earliest. After all he can be lucky if he successfully makes it back into F1at all.


    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

     That's terrible. "Waiting to see if the hand SURVIVES" is not the prognosis one wants to hear.

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    That is terrible, he is one of my favorite drivers.  I was sitting at the hairpin in Montreal when he had the big crash (and the next year when he WON!).

    The roads in Andorra are very narrow and steep.  I have a home in Pal where I visit in the winter to ski and some most places in andorra you feel like walking with a rope.  Not like Kansas.  Love Andorra though - NO TAXES!

    Best wishes - maybe like Mika H., he willcome back even quicker!  Recall Mika's Australian GP wreck. 

     


    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    Hope he fully recovers the use of his hand. If not, there may be hope. If Alex Zanardi can race without legs, maybe they can put something together to allow him to continue racing as well, though it may not be in F1.

    After that pic the serious injury is understandable. The pics on the news did not look that bad...

    I hope he will be back soon.

    Freakishly scary accident.. Kubica is actually very lucky from the looks of it...

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    So who will fill in for Kubica?

    Hulkenberg, Heidfeld, Liuzzi, Senna, Di Grassi, De La Rosa, Chandok?

    I think Liuzzi might get it - but I would personally prefer Heidfeld or Hulkenberg.

    Renault have said that Heidfeld, Liuzzi and Senna are under consideration ...

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    A mistake on behalf of Renault not to engage Hulkenberg, the most authentic talent from the young generation.

    Heidfeld is very experienced but he can shine in perfect conditions only. He is winless after so many years and always outraced by Kubica..

    Liuzzi nothing special.

    DLR accomplished tester but not the person to revive Renault.

    Chandok, LdiG who?

    Senna, "what's in a name?"

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    My thoughts too  Hulkenberg would be a smart move - they could compare him with Petrov and when/if Kubica returns, choose the faster one. I would guess that the Hulk would be quicker - Renault could neatly end up with Kubica and Hulkenberg as a result ... with the Hulk joining at a bargain price ...

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    Hulkenberg no doubt, that will be a great chance for him.

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    A german newspaper just wrote on there website that heidfeld and senna will do the tests this weekend


    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    He is very lucky to have survived that incident, but I doubt he will see it that way.  I wish him every good fortune for the future, whatever that may hold...

    Re: Kubica seriously injured in Rally crash

    Renault is to assess Senna and Heidfeld in Jerez as Kubica's replacement. I would pick Heidfeld anyday over Senna - he's far more experienced and will be his usual consistent self whereas even Chandok was faster than Senna in the same equipment last year at HRT.

    http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2011/02/senna-and-heidfeld-to-try-out-as-kubica-replacement/

    Heidfeld was even tester for Pirelli for a while - that helps too.
