The team owner of Formula One driver Robert Kubica has announced that he has become the subject of an investigation following an incident at a petrol station near his home in Italy.
Kubica, who lost his right arm in a rally crash in 2011, was released from hospital earlier this month after being found unharmed following an accident at a petrol station in the town of Pontevedra, where his motorcycle collided with a truck while stopped to fill up. The truck was allegedly being operated by someone with links to organised crime.
“Today, Robert Kubica and his wife, Agata, received notification from investigators over their carpark incident yesterday,” the driver’s F1 team-owner, Robert Fernández, said in a statement on Thursday. “Robert has reassured us and his family that he is in good health and assured us he has fully co-operated with the investigation.”
Fernández was due to visit Kubica and his family on Friday after the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, but the Kubica family decided against the visit due to the ongoing investigation.
