Zanardi back home 18 months after horror accidentAlex Zanardi, the former Formula 1 driver who became a Paralympic champion, has returned home to continue his rehabilitation after a horrific road accident in June 2020, his wife Daniela Zanardi announced on Monday.

Zanardi underwent carnio-facial reconstruction after suffering serious head injuries when his handbike crashed into an oncoming truck during a race in Tuscany.

“Alex was able to leave the hospital a few weeks ago and he is now back with us, at home,” Daniela Zanardi said in an interview broadcast by BMW, for whom Zanardi is an ambassador.

“After the long time in hospital, it is important for him to be back with his family and in his familiar environment.

“You also have to consider that, due to the coronavirus situation, Alex had only people with face masks and in protective equipment around him for one and a half years.

“He has returned a little bit to normality which gives him extra strength.”

The 55-year-old Zanardi was first hospitalised in Milan, transferring to a hospital in Padua, closer to his home, a year ago.
