Kubica expected to leave hospital soon

BY foxsports • April 21, 2011

F1 driver Robert Kubica expects to leave the hospital within the next 10 days after recovering from multiples injuries in a crash two months ago.

Kubica was replaced by German driver Nick Heidfeld on the Renault team after suffering multiple injuries during a rally crash in February. He had seven hours of surgery to save his right hand before operations on his shoulder, leg and elbow.

Kubica says in a team statement that, ''I am starting to feel a lot better now,'' and that ''I hope to be able to leave within the next 10 days.''

Heidfeld dedicated his third-place finish at this month's Malaysian Grand Prix to Kubica, who says he has been ''literally submerged'' by letters of support.
