Motor racing-Davidson vows to win Le Mans after crash
LONDON, June 20 |
LONDON, June 20 (Reuters) - British driver Anthony Davidson was flown home on Wednesday after breaking his back in a crash at the Le Mans 24 Hours race at the weekend.
"Home time today," the former Formula One racer said on his Twitter feed before posting a photograph of himself on a stretcher next to a medical plane flying him to Oxford.
"You've been cruel once again Le Mans but I'll stand on your top step one day."
Davidson, 33, suffered two broken vertebrae on Saturday night after a collision with a slower Ferrari he was trying to lap at the Sarthe circuit sent his Toyota flying through the air and into the tyre barriers.
Doctors have put his recovery time at three months. Davidson said on Sunday he hoped to be fully mobile again after three weeks. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Robert Woodward)
