Alessandro Zanardi is a phenomenon - and living proof that there are no limits to tackling a challenge with passion and enthusiasm. 17 years ago, the former Formula 1 driver and two-time ChampCar champion lost both legs in an accident. But that was not the end of his career, but the beginning of an exciting new chapter in his life. Today he is not only successful in motorsport and as a para-athlete, but also idol and inspiration for people around the globe. They call him - even if he does not like to hear it himself - simply "hero."
