Kubica able to drive automatic car
29 January, 2012
Jan.29 (GMM) Robert Kubica has returned to the wheel of a Renault Megane, according to reports in Italy.
The Omnicorse website reports that the Pole, horrifically injured in a rally crash a year ago, is now recovered enough to drive a car with an automatic gearbox.
The former BMW and Renault driver re-broke his leg in an icy slip recently but is now managing some steps without crutches, the report added.
Kubica is reportedly spending five hours a day on physiotherapy, with movement in his previously badly-injured right arm now almost “back to normal”.
