Anthony Davidson has returned to the UK to continue his recuperation

Anthony Davidson has been flown back to his Oxford home to continue his recovery after his back-breaking crash last weekend at the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The Toyota driver – who also serves as a commentator and analyst for SKY’s F1 coverage – fractured his T11 and T12 vertebrae after flipping his car when he made contact with GTE Am Ferrari driver Piergiuseppe Perazzini at the Mulsanne corner.

Davidson was flown back on a stretcher in a medical plane overnight. Although his recovery time is estimated to take some three months, the Englishman believes he will be back to full fitness sooner than that.

Despite the accident, Davidson also vowed to return to tackle the Le Sarthe circuit again.

“You’ve been cruel once again Le Mans, but I’ll stand on your top step one day!” he wrote on his Twitter feed.

A double-billing of F1 and V8s at Abu Dhabi!
