Ferrari Sends Warm Message to Kubica
text size: A- A+
Although he is now feeling better, has regained consciousness and is able to talk to people, the Pole is facing the prospect of a second surgery, and is likely to miss half of the 2011 F1 season at best. Until the Italian doctors will give a definitive prediction on his recuperation period or his chances of driving an F1 car in the future, Kubica has wished all the well from the Ferrari organization, including its two drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.
“Robert has inner strength and I am sure he can rely on that this time too,” said Alonso, who was one of the first people to visit Kubica in the hospital on Sunday night. “The most important thing is that Robert’s life is not in danger and the rest can take its time, but I am with him in heart and mind.”
Felipe Massa, who went through a similar near-death experience back in 2009 when he almost lost vision due to an on-track incident in the Hungarian Grand Prix qualy, also sent his best to Kubica, while also giving him a piece of advice on how to overcome the situation easier.
“All my thoughts are with Robert at such a difficult time. I have first hand experience of this type of situation and I learned how important it is to feel so much support from family and friends,” said Massa. “I hope that I too can send some positive energy his way and I am praying that all goes well and he gets back to normal. Forza Robert, from the bottom of my heart!”
Ferrari's team principal Stefano Domenicali also joined his drivers in wishing the Renault driver a quick return to the F1 paddock and grid.
“Robert and those dear to him are in our thoughts at this difficult time. He is very tough and has a very strong constitution: we are sure he will get out of this and we can’t wait to see him back on track, with his sense of irony and his smile. Go on Robert, give it your best shot. We are waiting for you!” he said.
