Billy Monger "Everyone was cheering me on, it was all positive which is good, I don't want my injuries to be a negative thing around the paddock I want people to see it as a positive that made the motor-sport community come together.
When i found out the extent of my injuries, i still didn't think i'd get the support I've got.
When a tragic event like this happens, people pull together - I definitely want to take the positives out of this and make sure that I use it in a positive way for the rest of my life now.
I have still got a few years left in me for sure, so I want to prove how much you can do even with something like this."
