Renault driver Rober Kubica is out for this year’s F1 season – and possibly longer – after a serious crash in a rally in Italy. The crash left him with multiple fractures and he had to undergo extensive surgery on his right hand, which was partially severed in the accident. He’s due to have even more surgery on the other fractures to his right-hand side. It’s currently expected that he’ll be out for at least a few months, though less optimistic reports suggest the recovery could take a year, so currently it’s difficult to tell. His team have yet to decide on who will be the replacement driver.
In other news, a man previously fined for owning or training an animal for fighting died after being stabbed by a knife attached to a fighting cock. That’s irony for you.
