Poland’s Robert Kubica left the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve aboard a medical helicopter on Sunday complaining of pain ‘all over his body’, according to sources in Montreal.

Reports that he broke his leg in the horror shunt are believed to have been based on an in-car radio transmission from race winner Lewis Hamilton’s engineer, but the news was not confirmed by the circuit Medical Centre.

Medical Centre officials did however confirm that Kubica emerged from the 280kph smash with ‘no internal injuries’, and he was due to have x-rays and other checks at the L’Hopital du Sacre-Coeur in downtown Montreal.

The only other information came from Kubica’s manager Daniele Morelli, who said in a television interview that Robert spoke “nearly normally” before being airlifted.
