According to CART Director of Medical Affairs, Dr. Steve Olvey, two-time FedEx Series champion Alex Zanardi's condition continues to progress well from his injuries resulting from his September 15th race accident in Germany.

Olvey said that Zanardi has been requiring minor operative procedures on his left leg at the Krankenhaus Berlin-Marzahn hospital in Berlin. The process is expected to be completed soon and at that time he will be discharged from the hospital and head to Italy to begin rehabilitation.

Olvey, who spoke with Zanardi, said he sounds upbeat and has been talking frequently with his friends from around the world. He also has been maneuvering his wheelchair around the hospital.

According to Olvey, Zanardi is looking forward to rehabilitation as well as developing improved prosthetic devices in the future.
