In 1991 his season was to come to a premature end after an violent 150 mph accident at Spa's notorious Eau Rouge. The car was destroyed and Zanardi in hospital with severe concussion. In Champ Car Zanardi won 15 races from his 51 starts and claimed two CART championships in 1997 and 1998 before returning to F1 1999, it didn't work out. Zanardi was still under contract and being paid by Williams in 2000 so he sat out the season. Back in Champ Cars 2001 Zanardi suffered his horrific accident at Lausitzring, losing the lower half of both of his legs. Alex fought back in remarkable fashion, learning to walk on artificial limbs. Twenty months after his accident, Zanardi was back in the Champ Car cockpit, and he completed 13 laps to symbolically complete his unfinished 2001 race. Alex has won four gold and two silver medals in the Paralympic Games, and is an eight-time world champion in the para-cycling discipline.
