Former Formula One racing driver Alessandro Zanardi lost both his legs in a devastating accident at Germany's Lausitzring more than 10 years ago.

But after having learned to walk on prosthetic legs, he became a medal-winning Paralympic athlete.

Now he is planning a return to motor sports in a specially adapted car.
