Da Matta goes home

Former Toyota F1 driver Cristiano da Matta has returned to his home in Miami having been released from the Theda Clark Medical Centre in Neenah, Wisconsin, where he has been for the last seven weeks, since colliding with a deer during testing at Elkhart Lake.

Da Matta spent several weeks in a coma after the accident and while he is making big progress it remains to be seen if he can ultimately return to Champ Car racing in the future.
