Welcome to F1Minute for the 11th February 2011.
Robert Kubica underwent further surgery today, as he continues to recover from a heavy crash during an Italian rally event last weekend. Renault confirmed that he had been in for operations on his foot, shoulder, humerous and anterior elbow, and that all four procedures had gone well.
Prior to the surgery, Kubica spoke to Gazzetta dello Sport in his first interview since the crash. He seemed very positive, saying: “I want to get back on the track stronger than ever, because after these accidents you aren’t what you were before, you improve.” He added that he injured his right arm in a previous accident seven years ago, and recovered well from that so there is no reason he can’t do it again. He said: “It was the same right arm - massacred. But after four days it didn’t feel as good as it feels now, and this reassures me.”
Meanwhile, Renault have confirmed that Nick Heidfeld will be in the car at Jerez tomorrow, whilst Bruno Senna will take the seat on Sunday, as they are evaluated to start the season proper.
