Kubica's road to recovery is improving
Robert Kubica has undergone his final operation on his injured right arm, which has since been described as a “total success”.
After a rally crash before the season began, Kubica has been left with massive damage to his right arm, which has taken three operations to allow him to heal.
With this final operation, it is believed that Kubica can regain full control of his right arm and albow. It has been reported that there were no complications during the surgery, and that the operation was 100% successful.
Robert’s manager Daniele Morelli has stated:
"Robert has left the surgery room just a few minutes ago. Luckily I can confirm that
the operation was completely successful, so the whole elbow joint has been restored
and functionality is now fine.
Certainly this one will be the final surgery, so we can say that tomorrow starts the
final phase with full recovery of the arm movement functionality, and Robert will be
able to start training specifically to regain full control of his functionality."
Apparently when Kubica regained concsiousness after the operation today, the first thing he asked was for the results of today’s Belgian Grand Prix.
Unfortunately, no estimate can be made on his possible return to Formula 1. However, his manager added that his future will become clearer by mid-October.
