Refund for Kubica backers

Ladbrokes are offering anyone who backed Robert Kubica for the 2011 Formula One Championship the option to reclaim their stake.

Following the news of his accident the firm are giving punters the option of simply reclaiming their money or holding on to the bet should they think he can recover in time to participate and win.

In order to reclaim stakes customers are advised to contact Ladbrokes’ customer services department.
