How close is that armco sized slot to the driver Shocked

Hopefully the surgery will go well and he will have near normal function of his hand and will be able to return to the cockpit one day.

Get well soon, Robert!

Renault is screwed big time! Even if they have a winner car, there's no one to show it...

Kubica is out of surgery following seven hours of work on his injured hand. Doctors warn that it could be a week before we know more

The lead surgeon warned media that it "could be a year" before the Pole's hand is fully healed, if functionality does indeed return

Dr ROSSELLO: "If the operation went well, it will take a year of rehabilitation. We expect a prognosis in five to seven days." #F1

as long as he's alive after such a terrible accident, and that he'll be able to go on living a normal life (hopefully), i really don't care what Renault will do, who will race for them etc...

Geez, that's not good at all! He's one of the finest drivers of the current top-crop, and this is a real blow to his career, if he can't recover as quickly as possible. This news was not nice at all for me, this weekend!
I hope that he gets well soon enough, before he loses too much ground in this season.
But hey, he, as all of these guys, is made of tough material, and will recover much sooner than a regular person would - because of his physical and mental fitness.
As a side note, now it's the time for Vitaly Petrov to show, if he's good enough, by taking leading role at Renny, for the beginning of the season!
They say that Renault would maybe hire Senna for replacement of the brave Pole... :?

1. Doctors predict a 12 month recovery period.

2.Yep, eric boullier last week said Senna would be in the top position to replace a driver if need be.

I just don't care about who is going to replace Robert at this time.
My thoughts and prayers go to his full recovery even if it takes one season.
As soon as I get the information that he is fine I will care about who's gonna be on his seat.

Yes his concern about the complications that may occur after a surgery like this reminds me of Ronnie Peterson's.

It's not the same situation here, I think. Years of advancement in medicine (although I believe no one would have saved Peterson, even today) and a different kind of injury. I'm worried that Formula 1 may have lost one of its greatest talents of today, but then again, as long as he himself can live with that...

Renault are going to suffer for their little "Senna in a black and gold stunt" they were trying to pull off.

No way he is driving this year, lucky to rehabilitate adequately from the degree of damage to the arm. I feel for him.

A sobering reminder of the continued danger of motorsport. In a way, we have been very fortunate as F1 fans that the safety technology and regulation has resulted in such strong and protecting cars.

Let's hope something will be learnt from the accident so as to prevent such cockpit penetration of rally cars in the future. The front of the roll cage was clearly not sufficient - perhaps some sort of carbon fiber half-cockpit/firewall should be mandated.

To be honest, I am surprised that we haven't seen more nasty crashes in rally.

Knowing the F1 drivers mentatily I suspect Kubica would be back at the earliest possible moment.....possibly even before his hand is fully healed.

Problem with the not full 100% use of hand and F1 is that F1 cars have huge and growing amount of things to use on steering wheel during the race and this needs precise control of hands.

Renault is organizing a press conference today morning at 11:00 CET at the Santa Corona Hospital . They will probably give a few more details about his latest condition. Hoping for the best.

Kubica's condition is 'stable but serious'

By Jonathan Noble Monday, February 7th 2011, 07:19 GMT


Robert Kubica was put into an induced coma last night in a bid to help his recovery from the serious injuries he suffered in a rally crash on Sunday.

The Renault driver was left with multiple fractures to his right arm and leg, plus severe cuts to his forearm, after crashing out of the Ronde di Andora rally. It is understood the injuries were caused by a length of crash barrier penetrating the cockpit of his Skoda Fabia and striking him.

Kubica underwent a seven-hour operation throughout Sunday afternoon at the Santa Corona Hospital in Pietra Ligure to try and save the use of his right hand - and he is said to be in a 'stable but serious' condition.

Doctors also put him into an induced coma, but he could be woken up from it sometime on Monday morning depending on his progress through the night.

Renault team-mate Vitaly Petrov and his boss Eric Boullier are scheduled to visit the hospital today to get an update on Kubica's conditions.

"The news of Robert's accident came as a real shock to the whole team," said Boullier. "All of us, at Lotus Renault GP, wish him a quick recovery.

"We have been really impressed with the way the doctors looked after him and we would like to thank the whole team of the Santa Corona Hospital for their professional approach and dedication.

"I will be travelling to Italy, along with Vitaly Petrov, in order to see Robert and tell him that we are impatiently waiting for his return."

Professor Mario Igor Rossello, the hand specialist who worked on Kubica, said he was encouraged by how the operation had gone but admitted it was too early to say how well the driver would recover.

"It has been a very important and difficult operation," he said. "Robert Kubica's right forearm was cut in two places, with significant lesions to the bones and the tendons. We did our best to rebuild the functions of the forearm.

"It took seven doctors, split into two teams and a total of seven hours to complete the operation. One team was the emergency task force from the hospital of San Paolo (Savona) that is normally appointed to treat this sort of injury, while the other team came from the orthopaedic department of the Santa Corona Hospital (Pietra Ligure).

"At the end of the operation, Robert's hand was well vascularised and warm, which is encouraging. Following the surgery, Robert Kubica will remain under permanent monitoring overnight because his condition remains serious."

Renault has said that a further statement will be made on Monday morning by Professor Rossello and Kubica's manager Daniel Morelli.



Kubica's co-driver Jakub Gerber emerged uninjured from the accident, and said he did not know what had caused the Pole to go off the road.

"We were on the first four kilometres of the first special stage. I was looking at the notes and didn't notice that the car was skidding," he told Gazzetta dello Sport. "Only when we crashed I saw Robert holding his arm, and after a few moments he lost consciousness.

"Robert isn't just a great driver, he is a friend. I just hope he can recover soon."

Renault team principal Eric Boullier defended the decision to let Kubica keep rallying during the vital build-up period to the new F1 season, even though that decision now appears to have left his team without its lead driver for the year ahead.

"Robert is a person we love dearly: we are extremely sad and obviously shocked," he told the Il Vostro Giornale. "Whether it's a Lotus, a Renault or a Skoda it doesn't make any difference: it's nothing to do with business.

"We've let him do it because rallying is what he loves to do. Rallying is vital for Robert and for his sanity. Besides that, there is a reciprocal agreement. We knew the risks and so did he. We didn't want a robot or a corporate man for a driver."

Kubica has received an outpouring of good wishes from the F1 community after news of his injuries emerged - with a host of drivers, including Jenson Button, Rubens Barrichello, Heikki Kovalainen and Timo Glock - all expressing their hope that he recovers quickly.

Button said: "Shocking news about Robert Kubica. I wish him a speedy recovery."

Fernando Alonso, who is a good friend of Kubica's, even travelled to the Italian hospital on Sunday to speak to doctors - although it is not clear if he was able to see Kubica in person.
