Formula One ace Robert Kubica has begun physiotherapy after undergoing a third operation on injuries sustained during a horror crash over a week ago, the hospital where he is being treated said on Friday.
The Pole spent eight hours in surgery at the Santa Corona hospital in Pietra Ligure, Liguria, on Wednesday to repair damage to the outer part of his elbow.
Kubica had earlier in the week undergone surgery on his foot, shoulder and inner elbow while last week he was operated on for seven hours to repair his hand.
"Robert Kubica's state of health is currently satisfactory," the hospital said in a statement, adding that he had now been transferred to their rehabilitation centre.
"It probably won't be necessary to undergo more surgery," the statement added.
The Lotus Renault GP driver crashed while competing at the Ronde di Andora Rally in Liguria on February 12. He lost control on a bend at high speed and crashed into a guard rail, which buckled the driver's door, before ending up in a church wall.
