Lotus Renault has issued yet another press release on Robert Kubica’s condition, following the high-speed crash at the Ronda de Andora Rally. It was mentioned previously that the Pole suffered from multiple fractures to his right arm, leg and hand and doctors has also revealed that he suffered from severe cuts to his forearm, which could leave an impact on the mobility of his right hand.

Following the diagnosis, Kubica underwent a seven hour-long surgery at the Santa Corona Hospital and doctors have revealed that they are satisfied with the way the surgery went. A total of seven doctors worked on Kubica and they were split into two teams, one team was made up by the emergency task force from the Sao Paolo Hospital in Savona and the other team was from the orthopedic department of the Santa Corona Hospital.

“It has been a very important and difficult operation. Robert Kubica’s right forearm was cut in two places, with significant lesions to the bones and the tendons. We did our best to rebuild the functions of the forearm,” said Professor Mario Igor Rossello, Director for the Regional Centre of Hand Surgery at San Paolo Hospital in Savona. The professor went on to add that at the end, Kubica’s hand was “well vascularised and warm” and this comes as good news.

His status is currently “stable but serious”. Following the surgery, the was placed into an induced coma and could be woken up later today. Eric Boullier, Team Principal and Managing Director of Lotus Renault said “The news of Robert’s accident came as a real shock to the whole team. All of us, at Lotus Renault GP, wish him a quick recovery.”

“We have been really impressed with the way the doctors looked after him today and we would like to thank the whole team of the Santa Corona Hospital for their professional approach and dedication. I will be traveling to Italy tomorrow, along with Vitaly Petrov, in order to see Robert and tell him that we are impatiently waiting for his return,” he added.

From the looks of it, Robert Kubica is likely to be temporarily replaced. The last time such an incident happened was when Felipe Massa suffered from a severe crash at the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix and his team, Ferrari was forced to temporarily replace him with the team’s test driver Luca Badoer. Badoer was then replaced by Giancarlo Fisichella who was bridged from Force India. Fisichella’s place in Force India was then given to Vitantonio Liuzzi.

We have also added a video interview with Professor Mario Igor Rossello, who gave some comments after the surgery. Rossello was asked if Kubica can return to do his job, and the professor’s answer was that it is “quite difficult”. There is also another video which shows us Kubica’s damaged Skoda Fabia rally car, which is the one he crashed in. Our best wishes are with Kubica. Check out the videos after the jump.
