Lotus Renault GP has officially revealed that its main driver, Robert Kubica (pictured on the left) has suffered from a high speed crash this morning while competing in the Ronde di Andora Rally held in Italy. While details are scarce at the moment, we do know that the 26 year old driver from Poland was just 4.6 kilometers away from the start of the rally when his car left the road and came in contact with a wall.

He was then airlifted to the Pietra Ligure Hospital where he is undergoing medical checks. His co-driver Jacub Gerber walked away unhurt. A report by BBC suggests that Kubica may not be able to start the 2011 season which commences on 13th March in Bahrain.

There is also a chance that Kubica may not even continue his career in Formula 1, according to the report that is, given that he had a surgery on his left arm in 2003 following a Formula 3 crash. The report also stated that his injuries are not life threatening. Lotus Renault will release another statement soon and hopefully we will get confirmed details on his condition.

If Kubica cannot compete, Lotus Renault has previously announced Bruno Senna, Romain Grosjean and Fairuz Fauzy as backup drivers and one of them will probably pick up the seat.

UPDATE: LRGP has update via Facebook – after extensive medical checks, Kubica has been diagnosed with multiple fractures to his right arm, leg and hand and is undergoing surgery at the Santa Corona Hospital.
