Hospital officials say injured Formula One driver Robert Kubica has left the intensive care unit.

The Polish driver crashed while competing in a rally in Italy on Feb. 6, and underwent several surgeries.

The hospital in Pietra Ligure near Genoa said in a medical bulletin Friday that Kubica's condition was "satisfactory." It said he has been "transferred as scheduled from an intensive care unit to a rehabilitation department."

Kubica had elbow surgery Wednesday. Immediately after the crash, he underwent seven hours of surgery to save his right hand and then had subsequent operations on his shoulder and leg.
