Kubica suffers yet another setback

Robert Kubica suffered another setback in his bid to recover fitness and return to the Formula 1 grid when it was confirmed this afternoon that the former Grand Prix winner has suffered a fracture to his right leg.

It is the same leg that the Polish star broke following his Ronde di Andora rally crash in February of last year that saw him have to be cut from his car with severe leg, arm, shoulder and elbow injuries.

The latest setback to afflict Kubica in his recovery occurred at his home inItalywhere it has been reported that he slipped on ice in his garden.

The news comes after Ferrari once more were linked with the driver for 2013. Speaking prior to the announcement of Kubica’s injury Ferrari’s Stefano Domenicali said:

“Robert is a great driver, but he had very severe injuries and he is still working to get back to normal living. We need to wait to see. That kind of injury takes a long time to recover from.”

With Kubica’s Renault contract now expired and the team having hired Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean this injury will once again cast serious doubts over whether Kubica will ever make a return to the Formula 1 grid.

    Keep them articles coming Steve – enjoy them immensely. Saves me trawling the net for the news!!

    He’s on some run of luck! And these things come in three’s it’s said – what’s next? Realistically looking at a 2013 return anyway so a three month recovery for the leg shouldn’t be a problem. Plenty of sports cars and maybe even and Indycar run out this year should get him back into the swing of things.

    Would love to see him in a good car and a good tilt at a Championship. Certainly has the talent.
