Robert Kubica has suffered another injury setback

It seems that Robert Kubica can’t take a trick – the Polish driver has suffered a major setback to his recovery plans by breaking his leg again.

The 27-year-old, who has been recuperating for the last eleven months after he sustained horrific injuries in a rallying accident, slipped on an icy path near his home in the Italian town of Viareggio. He broke the lower tibia in the same leg that bore the brunt of his injuries in his February rally smash, further delaying his hopes of making a return to the cockpit, reportedly with Ferrari.

He was taken to hospital and will now undergo another surgical procedure, this time to insert a screw just above his right ankle to mend the fracture. He will be in plaster for at least four weeks before beginning more rehabilitation.
