Pietra Ligure’s Santa Corona hospital will file a €100,000 claim against Robert Kubica’s insurers to cover the costs of the Pole’s 76-day stay after the Renault driver was critically injured in a rally accident in February.
Reports a variety of Italian media sources – including La Gazzetta dello Sport, La Stampa and ANSA – claim the daily cost of nursing the 26-year-old back to health amounted to over €1,300 per day while the Pole was treated for multiple fractures and a partial amputation of his right hand.
Kubica has since been discharged and is resting at home at Monaco before he kickstarts a lengthy outpatient rehabilitation programme that he – and the rest of the F1 community – hopes will see him return to the F1 cockpit.
Meanwhile, earlier reports that Kubica has been invited to Rome to attend Sunday’s beatification of the late Pope John Paul II – both were born in the same town in Poland – were indeed true, however Kubica’s manager Daniele Morelli confirmed that he did not travel to the Italian capital.
