I woke up this morning to the shocking news that Polish Renault F1 driver Robert Kubica was injured and suffered multiple fractures to his right hand and leg in a crash after taking part in the Ronde di Andorra rally event in Italy.

Initially, I thought it was just another minor incident that happens to drivers during the off-season, and that he might make a full recovery quickly. However, as more information filtered through, it turns out that it might be far more serious than expected and Kubica might even be forced to sit out the entire season.

For me, Kubica is one of the most talented drivers on the F1 grid at the moment, and the accident comes as a stunning blow with mere weeks to go before the 2011 Formula One season starts.

Fellow Formula One drivers have already expressed their sympathy for their stricken fellow competitor on Twitter. McLaren's Jenson Button wrote, "Shocking news about Robert Kubica. I wish him a speedy recovery."

Other tweets came from Williams' Rubens Barrichello, who said, "I would like to ask you for your best wishes to Kubica. He is being operated right now. We all like him and he deserves all the best.", while Lotus' Hekki Kovalainen and Toro Rosso's Sebastian Buemi also added in their well-wishes, the Finn tweeting, "All thoughts on Kubica tonight, he's a great guy, lets hope operations go well and he makes full recovery." and Buemi adding, "All my support to Robert Kubica. I am with you man"

I'm sure any supporter of Formula One would echo those thoughts to Kubica. Formula One drivers are a notably resilient lot, with Mark Webber also bouncing back from a broken leg in 2009 to make a spirited challenge for the title. Let's hope Kubica makes a speedy recovery and gets back to full racing action as soon as possible.

How do you echo a thought? Would he be able to hear them? If not, is he any better off?

More rehashing of other people's articles. Nothing to see here. Go back to your homes.
