Robert Kubica has returned to his home in Monaco to continue rehabilitation, following the latest surgery required after a fall that injured his leg last week.
Kubica re-opened a fracture in his right tibia, originally broken in his horrific rally crash last year, when he fell near an apartment he was staying at in Viareggio in Italy.
Medical tests on the leg at Mantova Hospital showed that the calcification of the bone had not happened properly last year, as a result of the Polish driver being forced to remain in bed for a long period after his crash. Following an operation last week to reduce the fracture and pin the bone, doctors cleared Kubica to return home, but he must wait another two or three weeks before resuming his physical training.
Despite the injury setback, it is believed that the leg fracture will not have an impact on Kubica's final recovery time because that is still limited by the nerve regrowth of his right arm and hand, which will still take several months.
