After little was announced about the 55-year-old’s progress, Daniela Zanardi, his wife, announced he had left the hospital a few weeks ago to continue his rehabilitation.

In an interview with Autosport, she said:

“The recovery continues to be a long process. An important step was that Alex was able to leave hospital a few weeks ago and is back at home with us now. We had to wait very long for this and are very happy that it was possible now, even if there are still temporary stays in special clinics planned for the future to carry out special rehabilitation measures on-site.”

Zanardi has continued to make progress with his recovery at home, but according to Daniela “there is still a long way to go”.
