Kubica to drive again next month?

7:33 am on 10 September 2011

The injured Formula One driver Robert Kubica should be back on a racetrack next month for the first time since his rally accident in February.

Kubica had final surgery on his injured right elbow last month and has now started full rehabilitation to regain strength.

Kubica, who lost a huge amount of blood in the near-fatal accident in Italy and has undergone a series of operations, has missed the entire Formula One season and is unlikely to race this year.

His Renault team has already said Brazilian reserve Bruno Senna will see out the season with Russian driver Vitaly Petrov.
