Lotus Renault issued the following update today:
“Today, Robert’s general condition has once again improved. According to the doctors, the levels of inflammation are in the norm considering his medical condition, and the recovery of his forearm remains encouraging.
“Yesterday, Robert was able to talk to his doctors and relatives. His medication makes him sleep quite a lot, but he is responding to all external stimulation. He has reacted well to the news about his condition and is ready to fight for his comeback.
“On Thursday, Robert should undergo some more surgery in order to stabilise the fractures to his right shoulder and right foot. Three or four days later, another operation will allow his elbow fracture to be stabilised as well.
“Robert will remain at the Santa Corona Hospital for two to three weeks. A decision will then be taken about where he should go in order to continue his rehabilitation.”
Eric Boullier and Vitaly Petrov visited Kubica today.
“We were about a quarter of an hour with Robert: we joked and we found it very well,” Boullier told Il Vostro Giornale. “Of course he immediately wanted to know the team schedules for this season. Meanwhile, we will search for the replacement of Kubica. The names at stake are those of the Senna, Liuzzi and Heidfield. The team is close to Robert, we are waiting with open arms and hope he can return by the end of the season.”
