Kubica’s latest updates – now he has recovered fingers and thumb

Published

on

Aug.07 – Robert Kubica is continuing to get better progressively from, last February Ronde di Andora rally in Italy. Robert Kubica hit a safety barrier which pierced the car and entered the race-seat, harshly harmful his right arm and hand – with progress having currently returned to most of the Pole’s fingers and thumb

“If you’ve been through so much and given as much as Robert has suffered to come back, you only want to come back for one reason – to have the same goals as before,” the Spaniard stressed. “The accident was bad luck, and a man of his calibre can shake it off – particularly as it had nothing to do with F1. Meanwhile, Kubica’s horrific high-speed rallying shunt has seemingly dissuaded Heikki Kovalainen from indulging his own love of the spectacular motor racing discipline. Before signing for Lotus after being released by McLaren at the end of 2009, the Finn – who has competed in several minor rallies in the past – had asserted that he wanted to ‘make sure that as well as F1, I am allowed to drive rallies’. Now, it seems, his enthusiasm has been tempered somewhat.

“I like to watch rallies on TV,” the 29-year-old told motorline.cc, “but right now I definitely don’t have the time to pursue it actively myself. We all saw what happened to Robert, and for this reason, rally driving is not in my plans at the moment.”
