Kubica to spend more weeks in hospital - manager

By on Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Feb.23 (GMM) Robert Kubica will stay in hospital for at least a few more weeks, his manager has confirmed.

It emerged recently that, after his third major surgery, the Renault driver was moved from intensive care to the Santa Corona hospital's rehabilitation unit.

But proper rehabilitation has not yet begun, the 26-year-old's manager Daniele Morelli is quoted in French by autohebdo.fr.

"He is going to stay resting and under observation for the next two to three weeks," he said.

Morelli, however, revealed that Kubica - who has been visited by Jarno Trulli this week - is consuming a "normal diet" and is regaining strength.

"And when his body allows it, Robert will begin his rehabilitation work."

Hand surgeon Igor Rossello said he saw Kubica on Tuesday and he is "pretty well" and can move the fingers on his badly injured arm "slightly".

"He's no longer in pain and his psychological condition is pretty good. He's obviously keen to start the rehabilitation work as soon as possible," added Rossello.
