The 26-year-old spent 76 days in an Italian hospital after Armco barriers pierced through the Skoda Fabia S2000 car during a stage of the minor Andora rally.

Media reports, including those by SID news agency and the L'Equipe sports daily, said investigators looked into wrongdoing and have now cleared both Kubica and his rally team.

As for the Renault driver's future in F1, Santa Corona hospital's Orthopaedics head Dr Francesco Lanza will not be drawn.

"His functional recovery surprised us (but) if this will let him do something very specific as driving a Formula One car, it's still very difficult to say," he told Italian website 422race.com.
