UPDATE: Kubica out of surgery, now it's wait and see

Adam Cooper reports Robert Kubica is now out of surgery.

In a stroke of good fortune, locally-based Italian hand surgery specialist Prof. Igor Rossello was involved. He is apparently an expert in the field. According to Cooper, Rosello told the Italian media “We have to wait at least a week to see if his hand survives” and that it could take a year to rehab.

Treatment was overseen by Lotus Renault GP Dr. Riccardo Ceccarelli.

James Allen talked to a hand reconstruction specialist about such an operation, while Joe Saward pieces together some of the details of the accident.

It is difficult to speculate at this time, however, it seems likely Kubica will miss a significant portion of the season.

Saward reports team boss Eric Boullier said it is not appropriate to talk about stand-ins at this time.

For now, we send our best wishes to Robert Kubica for a speedy recovery.
