Indycar could be another option as Alex Zanardi prepares to take his next step. former F1 driver recently won double Paralympics gold in hand-cycling, revealing afterwards that he is now considering a return to his sport of choice.

After losing his legs in a 2001 CART crash, the now 45-year-old Italian has tested hand-controlled Champ Car and F1 single seaters and won races in a BMW touring car. It emerged earlier this week that a DTM foray with BMW next year could be an option, and now his former Indy boss Chip Ganassi has revealed talks with Zanardi.

"We are talking to him but we'll have to see; talk is cheap," Ganassi, who is also involved in sports car and Nascar racing, is quoted by the Telegraph. "But it would be a dream come true to bring him back; it would be as big as it gets. I'd sure like to do it and I wouldn't want him returning with anybody else," added Ganassi. (GMM)
