Reutemann discharged from intensive care, reportedly in stable condition

Former Formula 1 driver and race winner Carlos Reutemann has been discharged from intensive care following health problems earlier this month and is in stable condition, Autosport.com reports.

The Argentine former driver was rushed to hospital on May 8 after suffering multiple internal bleeds in his digestive tract. After an apparent improvement last Monday, the accident struck again the following day.

An enteroscopy on Tuesday quickly provided better news. By Wednesday, the driver was lucid, and in relatively good shape. This situation persisted for the rest of the week, allowing Reutemann to leave intensive care on Sunday. However, he is still being monitored in the general ward in Rosario, Argentina.

Decorated driver

During his career in the premier class of motorsport, Reutemann won twelve Grands Prix. He made his debut at the Argentine Grand Prix. In 1981 he missed out on the world title by one point, which was won by Nelson Piquet.
