4 May, 2011
May 4 (GMM) Italian police investigators have finally cleared both Robert Kubica and his team in the wake of the horror rally crash in February.
The Renault F1 driver spent 76 days in an Italian hospital after Armco barriers pierced through the Skoda Fabia S2000 car, causing him serious injury, during a stage of the minor Andora rally.
Media reports, including those by SID news agency and the L’Equipe sports daily said investigators looked into wrongdoing – part of accident investgation procedures it Italy – and have now cleared both Kubica and his rally team.
As for the Polish driver’s future in F1, Santa Corona hospital’s Orthopaedics head Dr Francesco Lanza would not be drawn into making a prediction.
“His functional recovery surprised us (but) if this will let him do something very specific as driving a formula one car, it’s still very difficult to say,” he told Italian website 422race.com.
