Kubica recovering well after horror crash

7:10 am on 22 February 2011

The Polish formula one driver Robert Kubica is recovering well after his three major operations following a horror crash earlier this month.

Doctor's treating Kubica in northern Italy say the state of his health is good, there has been no post-operation infection detected, and all his vital signs are normal.

The Lotus Renault grand prix driver crashed before the start of a minor motor rally a fortnight ago suffering multiple injuries, including a partially severed right hand which was repaired after a seven hour operation.
