Polish FI sensation Robert Kubica has suffered “serious injuries” while taking part in the Ronde di Andora rally in Italy, reports Italian news agency ANSA.
The 26-year-old driver, who regularly takes part in rallies, was reportedly injured when his car left the road and struck a wall some 4 kilometres into the course on Sunday.
Kubica was extracted from his car and airlifted by helicopter to a local hospital. He was said to be conscious and the extent of his injuries were not conformed. Kubica’s co-driver Jakub Gerber was unhurt.
Kubica had been preparing for the start of the 62nd Formula One season, which begins in Bahrain on 13 March.
