Kubica surgery went fine, hand still in doubt


After suffering a high speed crash in an Italian rally this morning, Robert Kubica underwent extensive surgery on his right hand and leg. The doctors have now come out revealing that surgery went fine, but that they need to way a week to see if his hand survives.

The seven hour operation was lead by Italian hand surgery specialist Prof Igor Rossello from the nearby San Paulo Hispital in Savona. He was also joined by Renault's own doctor, Riccardo Ceccarelli.

“We have to wait at least a week to see if his hand survives,” Rossello told Italian media. While another team was working on his right leg, the team first performed bone reconstruction before the doctors focused on the sustained nerve damage.

Despite being able to save his hand, it will now at least take seven days to see Robert's right hand will heal to full functionality again.
