IndyCar's Pippa Mann has made a near-full recover from her injuries, sustained in the crash which killed Dan Wheldon at the end of the 2011 season. In the season finale at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, both drivers as well as Will Power collected what was initially a four-car pile-up, being launched into the air and towards catch fencing.
Whereas Wheldon tragically succumbed to his injuries and Power sustained a back injury which did not require surgery, Mann’s right little finger was badly damaged and has taken four months to heal.
“I can't completely make a fist, but I can grab a steering wheel,” Mann said at a pre-season IndyCar gathering in Indianapolis this week.
When recalling the huge accident, replays of which she refuses to watch, Mann explained to The Indianapolis Star: “I made the decision to close my eyes, because there wasn't anything I could do about it. I didn't want to see it.”
Las Vegas has been removed from the 2012 IndyCar schedule. The season will begin on the St. Petersburg road course on Sunday 25 March.
