LONDON, UK - British driver Anthony Davidson was flown home on June 20 after breaking his back in a crash at the Le Mans 24 Hours race at the weekend.

"Home time today," the former Formula 1 racer said on Twitter before posting a photograph of himself on a stretcher next to a medical plane flying him to Oxford.

Davidson said: "You've been cruel once again Le Mans but I'll stand on your top step one day."

Davidson suffered two broken vertebrae on June 16 after a collision with a slower Ferrari he was trying to lap at the Sarthe circuit sent his Toyota flying through the air and into the tyre barriers.

Doctors have put his recovery time at three months, though Davidson said he hoped to be fully mobile again after three weeks.
