1 Mins read

BMW Motorsport boss Mario Theissen has been among those wishing Robert Kubica well after the Pole suffered serious injuries in a crash in the Ronde di Andora Rally in Italy.

“The news of Robert Kubica’s accident was a shock to me personally and the entire BMW Motorsport team,“ said Theissen. “We had a long association with him and shared some great moments during that time. Robert made his Formula 1 debut with us. Together we celebrated many successes, with the highlight being his win in Montréal in 2008, which was also a one-two for the team. At the same location a year earlier we learnt how dangerous motor racing could be when Robert had a terrible accident. Thankfully he was able to leave hospital very soon after the accident and continued his successful racing career. We are now thinking of him and wish him a speedy and complete recovery.“

Kubica made his F1 race debut for the BMW Sauber team in Hungary in 2006 and claimed his first podium at Monza a month later. In total Kubica made 57 Grand Prix starts for the team claiming eight podiums, including a maiden F1 win at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix.
