The Italian hospital that nursed Robert Kubica back to health is set to file an insurance claim to recover the hefty bill.
Italian reports including La Gazzetta dello Sport, La Stampa and ANSA say the Pole's 76-day stay in Pietra Ligure's Santa Corona hospital cost about EUR 100,000.
The reports said the hospital will make the claim, amounting to more than EUR 1300 per day for the duration of the lengthy stay, to the 26-year-old Renault driver's insurers.
It also emerges that Kubica was personally invited to Sunday's beatification of his late countryman John Paul II.
His manager Daniele Morelli however said the driver did not travel to Rome because he is getting a few days of complete rest before commencing his rehabilitation in Italy.
