Oh, not a good news!
With a little over one month before the first GP, it seems Renault would need a replacement.
Who? Hulk, Heidfeld?

If they wan't any victory they will need to have somebody else then Grosjean but can you say to your third driver, you're not good even before he has driven 1 Mile in the new Renault

Terrible news, hopefully nothing is broken. Looks like we may not find out the true speed of this car.

Some say he has broken his wrist.
We will have to wait official news but not really a good start

I hope he'd be OK before Bahrain, but that would definitely hinder their car development.

Wittneses said that after the rescue officers got him out of the car he looked like he got no major harm but he was transported to hospital for thorough checks.

Le premier diagnostic fait état avec de plusieurs fractures, dont une à un fémur et une autre à un bras ou un poignet, et de blessures sérieuses.

This is not good.
He has broken his arm or wrist and also a femoral neck fracture.

Post by mith » Sun Feb 06, 2011 11:46 am

Kubica was transported with helicopter to hospital after crashing his Skoda Fabia S2000 on 6th kilometre of special stage of Ronde di Andora rally. He is suspected of several fractures. I don't know anything more at the moment.

Robert Kubica (Lotus Renault) s'est gravement blessé dimanche au rallye Ronde di Andora près de Gênes. Selon une source médicale, il souffre de «multiples traumatismes» et le «pronostic vital est réservé.» Au volant d'une Skoda Fabia, le Polonais de 26 ans a été victime d'une sortie de route à pleine vitesse et a percuté le mur d'une petite église. Il a été transféré en hélicoptère à l'hôpital Santa Corona de Gênes. (Avec AFP)



From l'Equipe.

Pronostic vital réservé --> doctors not so sure about whether or not he's going to make it :cry:



Edit : It seems like l'Equipe is once again doing some sort of sensationalism.
According to other sources, he was conscious while transfered, and could suffer from multiple fractures, especially wrist fractures.

Was hoping he would have a good season, but if he has a few suspected fractures and possible broken wrist, thats him out for the next roughly 3 to 4 months. Renault will now have to put all their weight behind Petrov and then put either Bruno Senna or Romain Grosjean in for Kubica.

Hope he isnt too badly hurt, and can make a full recovery.

Autosport wrote: Robert Kubica has been taken to hospital in Italy after what has been described as a 'serious' rally crash.

The Renault Formula 1 driver was contesting the Rally Ronde di Andora when he had a heavy accident on the opening stage.

Italian news agencies and local media are reporting that Kubica was transported to the Santa Corona hospital in Pietra Ligure by helicopter.

There has not yet been any official confirmation of the nature of Kubica's injuries. His co-driver Jakub Gerber is believed to be unhurt.

Latest on twitter is that he's broken his legs and wrist. Hopefully the usual exaggerations before a proper announcement.
