    I hate to be the pessimist here but having worked with these type of injuries and from what the surgeon described Kubica's hand is in very bad shape.It seems the hand was partially severed.Seems like he was trapped inside the car for a while which made everything worse.Nerve damage is irreversible. It would be a miracle if full functionality were to be restored.The next couple of days are crucial to see if the operation was successful.Wish him a speedy recovery.

    Kubica recovering as Renault weighs potential replacements

    The Lotus Renault GP team has issued another update on the progress of its star pilot Robert Kubica. The Polish driver, for those who haven't been following, crashed during the Ronde di Andorra in Italy on Sunday – just weeks before the start of the F1 season – and was airlifted to a local hospital where doctors treated him for multiple fractures and severed tendons in his right limbs.

    With the bulk of the procedures now behind him, Kubica is conscious (some reports state that he was revived from a medically-induced coma), and conversing with his doctors as well as visiting relatives and colleagues. Later this week, Kubica will have to undergo additional surgery (for his right shoulder and foot), to be followed by another procedure a few days later. He's expected to stay at the Santa Corona Hospital where he has been since the crash for another two or three weeks, after which he'll likely be transfered to another location to rehabilitate, likely for between five months and a full year.

    With his recovery underway but a long road ahead, Renault will need to find someone to temporarily take his place for the impending season. Although the team has both Bruno Senna and Romain Grosjean – both recent F1 drivers – on contract, the team is reportedly examining all of its options. Among them are Force India drivers Tonio Liuzzi and Nico Hulkeberg, both of which raced last season and have proven themselves competitive drivers. Liuzzi lost his seat this year at Force India, while Hulkenberg took a test-driver role with the team when he lost his seat at Williams.

    Renault are in big trouble.They need someone with experience to develop the car & who on the current list of probables has experience developing a car.Nick Heidfeld should be the best bet at the moment.I wish all this talk about Räikkönen earlier had been true,but that seems like just a lot of hot air.

    While I'd love to have them give Senna a chance in what was the fastest car last week if It were my team I'd put Hulkenberg in there. Heidfeld is good but I dont think he has the potential that Hulkenberg does.

    No more F-150 jokes.Whats's in a name?Apparently a lawsuit.Ford is suing Ferrari for using the name of their truck .Who didn't see this coming?So Ferrari reacted faster than a pitstop changing the name to 'F150th Italia' .Very creative

    Ecclestone: Bahrain GP fate to be decided next week

    Bernie Ecclestone: "If things stay as they are today, the answer is no. If it's not quietened down by Wednesday, I think we will have to cancel probably. If you are making travel arrangements, I'd say don't."


    F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has confirmed that a decision will be made next week with regard to whether or not to cancel the F1 2011 season opener in Bahrain, scheduled for March 13.

    The viability of the event has come into question in light of civil unrest, with four people having been killed and several hundred injured in clashes between protesters and government security forces. The GP2 Asia Series event at the Bahrain International Circuit this weekend was scratched from the calendar in the interests of safety on Thursday [see separate story – crash.net/gp2/news/].

    Speaking to Reuters, Ecclestone conceded that currently he is not especially optimistic.

    “We'll make a decision by Tuesday or Wednesday,” he stated. “If things stay as they are today, the answer is no. If it's not quietened down by Wednesday, I think we will have to cancel probably. If you are making travel arrangements, I'd say don't.”

    Earlier this week Ecclestone said that with the grand prix now less than four weeks away and a prior four-day group test planned at Sakhir for the beginning of March, 'the danger is obvious' [see separate story – click here].

    Following that the organisers put out a statement to try quell fears that attendees will be putting themselves at any risk, although despite those assurances, the GP2 Asia Series event was still canned.

    The BIC reiterated last night though, that they haven't given up hope of holding the event: "Our focus at the present time remains on delivering another successful event," said circuit CEO Sheikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa.

    "We continue to monitor the situation very closely indeed in association with the relevant authorities. Our priority at this time is ensuring the well-being of everyone associated with this event, and we will respond appropriately to any further developments."

    Bahrain to decide if GP goes ahead

    Crown Prince Salman ibn Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifa to make final decision on whether the Bahrain Grand Prix goes ahead


    Bernie Ecclestone has revealed that he will leave a decision on whether or not the Bahrain Grand Prix will go ahead to the country's Crown Prince.

    The opening round of the 2011 F1 season is in doubt after political unrest in the Gulf state led to violent clashes between police and protestors – with a number of people killed and scores injured.

    Ecclestone expects a decision on whether or not the event will go ahead as planned to be taken this week, although he hasn't ruled out the possibility that Bahrain could be moved to a date later in the year.

    He does however insist that another event wouldn't replace Bahrain on its scheduled date to the logistical nightmare it would create.

    Crown Prince Salman ibn Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifa will now make the decision on whether or not it is safe for the event to take place.

    "He will know whether it's safe for us to be there," Ecclestone told the BBC. "I've no idea. I'm not there, so I don't know. We won't advise people to go unless it's safe."

    The Foreign Office has already advised against anything other than essential travel to the country due to the ongoing situation, while the teams have said they will back whatever decision is taken.
