Major progress for da Matta
There is good news from the Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah, Wisconsin with Champ Car doctor Chris Pinderski telling US reporter Robin Miller that Cristiano da Matta has "turned the corner" and is now making impressive progress in his recovery. It is nearly a month since da Matta collided with a deer while testing at Elkhart Lake and until a few days ago the situation was not looking good. But, according to Pinderski, da Matta is now "doing great" and is able to communicate in two languages but, while still a little confused, is calling his relatives by name and is walking around.
Pinderski said that hopefully da Matta will be moving into rehabilitation shortly.
