Kubica injured in rally crash

Lotus Renault GP driver Robert Kubica, fresh off some hot times in Valencia last week, was injured Sunday in a high-speed crash at the Ronde di Andora Rally in Italy.

Kubica was airlifted from the scene and undergoing surgery. Sources say he suffered multiple fractures to his right arm, leg and hand, and was trapped in the car for more than an hour. His co-driver was unhurt.

A video from Italian television shows the aftermath of the wreck.

The Pole will be forced to miss the next test session and likely the start of the 2011 season.

Ex-HRT driver Bruno Senna would seem poised replace Kubica in the short term. Romain Grosjean is also on the books.
