'If It's F1, It's Vital'

Kubica to leave hospital

Robert Kubica hopes to leave hospital at some stage over the next 10 days.

The Polish driver crashed a Skoda Fabia during the opening stage of the Ronde di Andora rally in Italy in February.

His car crashed into a barrier which penetrated his car leaving him with a partially severed right hand and fractures in his right leg and arm.

In the days following his accident, the Pole underwent three operations and was put in an induced coma to help aid his recovery, it had been hoped that he wouldnít require any further surgery, but in early March, Kubica had a fourth operation to help the mobility of his elbow.

After a month of rehabilitation the Renault driver is now set to leave hospital.

'I would like to pay a huge amount of thanks to my fans whose support has been simply incredible since my accident in Italy back in February. I have been literally submerged by letters and various gifts and objects and it seems the flow is not slowing down. I also want to thank all the people in the world of F1 who showed in various manners their concern for the difficult situation Iím in.' Kubica told Renault's Official website.

'I am starting to feel a lot better now. My recovery is moving in the right direction: my strength and weight are increasing day on day and as a result I will leave the Santa Corona hospital very soon.

'I donít have a precise date as yet but I hope to be able to leave within the next 10 days.


After a short break at his home in Monaco, Kubica plans to travel to Dr. Ceccarelli's facilities in Italy where he will start a deep rehabilitation program and training programme.

The mobility of his hand remains limited, however appears to be expected at this stage of recovery, but there is still no time scale on an expected return to F1.
