After suffering a terrible Rally car accident while racing in the Ronde di Andorra in Italy on Sunday, Lotus-Renault's Robert Kubica seems to be back into a stable condition.
Following the accident, Robert was airlifted to a nearby medical center where he underwent seven hours of surgery to reconstruct his right forearm. Yesterday, he was able to communicate with medical staff and his family.
Additional surgery is set to take place on Thursday to stabilise fractures to Kubica’s right shoulder and right foot. After that, another operation will take place to treat his elbow fracture. Kubica is expected to stay at the Santa Corona Hospital for the couple weeks.
In the mean time, with the start of the 2011 F1 Season, LRGP is scrambling to find a temporary driver to fill in Robert's spot. Several reports indicate Bruno Senna as a likely replacement. Other possibilities include Antonio Liuzzi and Nico Hulkenberg.
