Robert Kubica will have to undergo a fourth surgical operation, with the Renault driver having to undergo a second operation on his right elbow.

The SID news agency confirmed that the 26-year-old will go under the knife once more, with the Santa Corona Hospital’s Professor Luigi Celli reportedly telling the Italian media that this operation aims to improve the long-term mobility of his right elbow.

Kubica suffered serious injuries to the right-hand side of his body in a rally accident over a month ago, where the guardrail he hit punctured through the centre of the Skoda Fabia S2000 in which he was competing.
