Zanardi has already trained extensively for this test – and he has stayed well within the specified time limit. Sporting a helmet and HANS system, he needs around four and a half seconds to get out of the BMW M4 DTM. “I am not worrying about this test,” confirmed Zanardi. “I have always been convinced that I will pass it easily. There are plenty of handholds in a DTM cockpit that I can use to pull myself out.” He views the fact that he will not be wearing prosthetic legs as an advantage. “I can move much faster without my prosthetic legs. There would be a greater risk of getting stuck somewhere with the prostheses.” Zanardi is also more agile without prosthetic legs outside the car, when leaving the vehicle quickly in the gravel trap, for example. In this case, Zanardi simply runs on his hands, which is easier than with his prostheses.
