Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Robert Wickens who drove the No.6 Lucas Oil Honda in the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season alongside James Hinchcliffe has confirmed that he is paralysed.
The news comes over two months after his horrendous crash at Pocono Raceway.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday evening the Canadian said:
Did my first slide transfer as a paraplegic today. My upper body is getting stronger everyday. I’ve only been posting videos of the small movement in my legs, but the reality is I am far away from walking on my own. I’ve never worked harder for anything in my life. More to come!! https://t.co/lMw8XJgOck
