Kubica woken from induced coma after surgery
Question of the Day
The 26-year-old Polish driver will likely need further surgery to his elbow and shoulder, his Lotus Renault team said.
“The movement of the finger, combined with the general health conditions of the patient, is encouraging,” Dr. Giorgio Barabino, head of the intensive care unit at the Santa Corona hospital, told the ANSA news agency.
“Kubica is conscious. He talks and understands what has happened. The first thing he thought about was his co-driver, and was informed about his condition.”
Co-driver Jakub Gerber was unhurt.
“In this moment, I feel extremely relieved compared to 24 hours ago,” Morelli said. “The improvement that he has made, in my opinion, and in the opinion of the specialists, is of great significance, and this makes us hopeful for the future.”
“He looked wonderful. The spirit is good. The guy is very strong; he is super strong,” Briatore said.
Kubica’s Skoda Fabia went off the road and hit a wall when he was a few miles away from the start of the Ronde di Andora Rally.
He was airlifted to the hospital, and a medical bulletin released Monday said the clinical situation was “of the utmost gravity” when Kubica arrived there. The bulletin said the abdominal and thoracic organs had been moderately compromised, while there was no evidence of significant brain alteration.
Kubica spent the night in intensive care and was woken from the induced coma in the morning.
