Robert Kubica is on the verge of leaving hospital, according to reports

Reports from Robert Kubica’s homeland are claiming that the Polish driver is now well enough to be discharged from hospital.

The Polska Agencja Prasowa (PAP) news agency has reported that officials from the Santa Corona hospital – where he has been staying since his horrific rally crash in early February – have declared that he is no longer at risk of post-operative infection. The Renault driver underwent four mammoth operations to repair his injuries, which included a partial amputation to his right hand, and multiple fractures to his right leg, arm, elbow, shoulder and ribs.

The 26-year-old’s manager, Daniele Morelli, has confirmed the reports and stated that his star driver could return home by the end of April.

Kubica has undergone extensive rehabililtation and physiotherapy, and has been able to stand and walk with assistance, and he will continue his treatment once discharged.

Meanwhile, Renault team owner Gerard Lopez has rejected any speculation as to when Kubica could make a return to the racing cockpit.

“Robert at the moment must keep his focus only on his recovery,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
