Lotus Renault GP has issued the following statement on Robert Kubica’s condition:
“After undergoing extensive medical checks this morning, Robert Kubica has been diagnosed with multiple fractures to his right arm, leg and hand. He is currently undergoing surgery at the Santa Corona Hospital in Pietra Ligure.
“Robert suffered a high-speed accident this morning while competing in the Ronde di Andora Rally.
“Daniel Morelli, Robert’s manager, will be available for the press in front of the hospital emergency entrance at 16h30 CET.”
It seems likely that his injuries were caused by the end of a barrier penetrating the cockpit.
