Alex Zanardi only raced in F1 41 times, never finishing higher than sixth. But for millions of fans around the world, he remains both a hero and an inspiration. A dazzling racer, who only really showed his true talent in IndyCars,

On this week’s show, he tells the full, incredible story.

  1. I can't remember

    He has just been seriously injured in a bike rally in Italy. I think he had surgery to his head. I just saw it and now can't find it. I wish for him only the best.

      I found it on the BBC site.
      "Former Formula 1 driver Alex Zanardi is in a "serious but stable" condition after having surgery on a head injury sustained in an accident during a handbike relay in his native Italy.

      The 53-year-old was involved in a crash with a lorry in Pienza on Friday.
