F1 News | Kubica Showing Encouraging Signs

After his serious crash in the Ronde di Ancora rally, Robert Kubica is showing encouraging signs.

He has been able to move his injured right hand.  On Thursday he will have a further operation to stabilise his right shoulder.  His surgeon Mario Rosello stated initially that up to one year will be needed for recovery.

Flavio Briatore commented after visiting Kubica that he looked better than he first thought and predicted a sooner return.

Kubica had been quickest in the pre-season F1 testing in Valencia with a time on day 3 of 1:13.144 ahead of Sutil 1:13.201.  Fernando Alonso was third quickest with a time set on day 2 of 1:13.307.  He was looking at a promising season this year.

Kubica is well respected and known to be one of the most talented drivers on the grid.  In 2008 he led the F1 championship up to mid season at which point BMW stopped development of the car.
