OMG! Lucky Escape For Robert Kubica In Rally Crash

Former F1 driver Robert Kubica has had a lucky escape, after crashing through safety barriers p… Kubica had been leading the rally in the Canary Islands when he lost control of his Citroen and ploughed into the barrier. Luckily, the barrier managed to stop the car plunging over the cliff, but the damage to Kubica’s car was substantial. It was Kubica’s second serious rallying accident. He was seriously injured in the first one, which ended his five year Formula 1 career. Talking in the aftermath of the crash, the Pole said the accident had surprised him. “We were not pushing really hard, I mean I just misjudged how deep downhill it was. “Unfortunately, it is not an excuse. When we were high in speed I was lacking the rear grip, especially when we were downhill and I should have taken account of this, but unfortunately I didn’t.”
