More surgery for recovering Kubica

2012-06-06 10:22

WILL KUBICA RETURN TO F1?: Robert Kubica has been in and out of surgery since his crash in 2011 and it’s doubtful he will return to Formula 1 in 2013.

Robert Kubica underwent surgery as the former BMW and Renault driver continues his bid to return to Formula 1.

Reports suggested Kubica, who was seriously injured in a rally crash in 2011, would almost certainly never return to F1.

Despite rumours Kubica has been testing in a F1 driving simulator. The results of those tests prompted orthopaedic surgery.

The ANSA news agency said the surgery, which was completed successfully, involved the insertion of prostheses in order to restore mobility to Kubica's right elbow.

Kubica's doctor, Ruggero Testoni, said: "Now he can turn the steering wheel completely. Before, he was unable to turn his palm down and was forced to take a hand off the wheel to perform left hand curves."

"The operation was preceded by a series of simulator tests for a formula one car," he added.

Kubica, who lives in Tuscany, will reportedly return to Verona frequently for physiotherapy.
