Former Grand Prix driver Hans-Joachim Stuck has recovered sufficiently from recent head surgery to be discharged from his treating hospital.
Following a heavy crash in an Audi R8 at the Nurburgring, the motorsport competition boss for the Volkswagen group had a haematoma removed just over a week ago.
The German SID news agency reports that the 59-year-old Stuck was discharged from his Neuwied-based hospital.
Thanking hospital staff for their “excellent care” afforded to him, the ever-jovial Stuck said: “Finally I can check out – man, I’m glad about that!”
Stuck will return home for further rest and will contest the next round in the German Endurance Championship, scheduled for September 25.
