Mcqueen’s toughest moment

McQueen claimed in a 2017 interview with the Sunday Times that the accident was so horrific he couldn’t even remember it in full, leaving him with numerous shattered bones and putting him in a coma for about a month. He recalls:
“I think I sliced a tire. Driver error might have been to blame. I have no memory, buddy. I struck quite hard, but yes, I lost control of the vehicle, headed to smash the back wall, and everything collapsed on me. My neck left leg and tibia were all broken while I was in a coma for three and a half weeks. Yes, I had a collapsed lung, a fractured arm, and all my ribs on the right side.”
Apart from the disturbance from the injury and the metal implants in his neck and back, McQueen reveals he still has daily pain. To cover up the damage in his eye, he also frequently wears sunglasses.
He then said, “Would I make any changes?” Not at all, I say. The most powerful drug in existence is motorsport.
