Robert Kubica has suffered another injury which could delay an opportunity for him to return to an Formula One seat.

The Polish driver has reportedly refractured his right leg that he injured in a rally accident early last year. It has been reported that Kubica took a fall on ice near his home in Pietrasanta, Italy.

Although there has been no official statement, reports that it has been found that Kubica has reopened the fracture in his right tibia.

The injury comes at an unfortunate time for Kubica after Ferrari played down talk that the Italian team had an intention to test him later this year, once fully recovered.

“That was not on our plan,” said Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali at the annual Wrooom media event.

“For sure Robert Kubica is a great driver that had a very severe injuries and at the moment he is still working very hard to try to go back to his normal living.

“So before any kind of thinking or discussion of whatever could be, we need to wait and see. For sure that kind of injury is taking a long time to recover so I can say we will wait and see if he is going to recover, but at the moment there is nothing in place.” comment policy
