London, Feb 10(ANI): Lotus Renault Formula One driver Robert Kubica, who was seriously injured in a high-speed rally crash on Sunday, has told his team that he is ready to ‘fight’ to make a comeback.

Kubica is likely to be in hospital for another fortnight after suffering multiple fractures.

“Robert’s condition has improved. He is ready to fight for his comeback,” the Sun quoted a team statement, as saying.

The 26-year-old was at the wheel of a Skoda Fabia, taking part in the Ronde di Andora Rally in Italy, when his vehicle left the road and crashed into a church wall.

He was airlifted to a hospital, where he underwent seven hours of surgery for multiple injuries, the worst of which was to his right hand, which was partially severed by a metal railing.

The new F1 season gets under way in Bahrain on March 13, and it is likely that Lotus Renault reserve driver Bruno Senna will be called in to take Kubica’s place alongside Russia’s Vitaly Petrov. (ANI)
