After lengthy hospital stays and operations, many fans and colleagues were very pleased seeing Marcel walk the pit lane (at the last VLN race) again. The overwhelming response from fans and colleagues in recent months, has given Marcel strength for his recovery. Marcel was surprised and happy on the huge interest about him.
The accident itself, Marcel doesn’t remember. Only the videos from YouTube and other footage, helps Marcel to get a picture of what happened. In recent months his recovery has made great progress. As a consequence of the accident he still has no vision on his complete right hemisphere and memory and orientation problems. There is no question, he will not be back next season. … “I still have some vision tests, then maybe I put myself in a race car and see how I feel. Only then I will make up my mind. I think it takes about 1-3 years,” said Marcel.
