Zanardi leaves hospital in Berlin
"I will always be very grateful to the doctors who saved my life," Zanardi told the media at the hospital. "Now my goal is to be able to walk again. I hope it will be in about a year. That is my new challenge."
Zanardi has not yet ruled out the possibility of racing again.
"Motor sport is an important part of my life," he admitted. "Perhaps I will drive in races again some day."
