F1 Driver Kubica Injured In Crash

Polish Formula One driver Robert Kubica has been seriously injured in a high speed crash while heading to the start of the Ronde di Andora rally in Liguria, Italy, and was flown to Santa Corona hospital in Pietra Ligure.

The 26-year-old Renault driver was injured Sunday when his car went off the road and hit a church wall. He apparently suffered multiple fractures and internal trauma, but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

In a statement, his Lotus Renault team said Kubica had to be extracted from the car by firemen, but his co-driver was uninjured. Renault's backup drivers are Bruno Senna of Brazil and France's Romain Grosjean.

Kubica finished eighth in last year's Formula One world championship, but appears to be unlikely to race with just a little over a month before the Formula Season opens at the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 13.
