Billy Monger has vowed to return to racing as soon as he can following his life-changing accident in a Formula 4 race at Donington Park that resulted in the amputation of his lower legs.

Monger, 18, hit a slow-moving car at high-speed during the F4 event last month that resulted in severe leg injuries, requiring emergency surgery.

Monger was brought out of a medically-induced coma in the days following the accident, with the motorsport community rallying round and raising over ?800,000 to aid his rehabilitation.

Monger is set to be discharged from hospital on Saturday, and has already set his sights on returning to the wheel of a race car.

"I'll be back racing as soon as I can," Monger said, as quoted by BBC Surrey. "All the support just makes me more determined."

Monger's father, Rob, added: "If he wants to get back in the car, that's fine by me. I'm not sure about his mum, but there we go."
