    They'll put him under some seriously intense physio probably, It's still another month till season starts he should be fit enough to drive by then.

    He woke up after his surgery and was able to move his fingers. But the doctor said it will take 6 days to know if it was properley successful. All the best to him, no doubt if he was in a McLaren/Ferrari or Red Bull, he would be right up there fighting for the title. Really hope he does come back, can't remember what race it was, but I remember him overtaking about 6 cars, his team pointlessly called him in for a pit stop, and he went out on fresh tyres and about 12 seconds behind and managd to overtake another 4 straight after pitting before the end of the race.

    Liuzzi, Heidfeld and Senna are all rumoured to replace him this year, Out of the three I'd pick Heidfeld without a doubt

    Car doesn't look that nice I dont think. Best ones are McLaren & Renault imo. Red Bull looks the same. Ferrari are apparently struggling for sponsors, hence why there is an Italian flag on the spoiler thing.

    Same, by an absolute mile. Liuzzi's decent but too error prone and Senna's not proven at all.

    However, team principal Eric Boullier made it clear last week that
    Bruno Senna would be his number one choice to slot into a race seat -
    because he is the one with the most contemporary F1 experience.
    "I will give it to the one who is ready," Boullier said when asked
    which of his reserves was most likely to be used first. "Bruno is the
    most ready driver."

    The reports I have read still sound pretty grim.

    From James Allen:

    Quote:


    To recap, the latest bulletins from the doctors suggest a horrendous
    injury to his right arm which caused him to lose a lot of blood and
    despite some heroics by surgeons, the experts in the field to whom I’ve
    spoken suggest he will never regain fine motor function in that hand and
    so his F1 career is unlikely to continue. Of course there are always
    miracle comebacks, but that is what will be required here for him to
    race an F1 car again.


    Some of the reports have even said he needed 6L of blood during the Op. A lot in any operation.

    Hope he makes a speedy recovery.

    Apparently it's between:
    De La Rosa
    Liuzzi
    Heidfield

    to take Kubicas race seat until he is back/if he comes back.

    Moved out of intensive care a few days ago. Moved his fingers and was laughing and joking around with his family. Things are looking on the up for him, maybe a few more operations but doubts whether he'll ever be able to race in F1 ever again. Mad Shame really, he deserves to win a championship, no doubt he would've done that if he was in a better car.
