ROME, June 20 (Reuters) - Former Formula One driver and twice Champ Car champion Alex Zanardi remained in serious condition in intensive care on Saturday after suffering severe head injuries in a road accident while racing his handbike in Italy the day before.

The 53-year-old Italian, who lost both legs and nearly his life in a 2001 Champ Car crash in Germany, was in a drug-induced coma and intubated, said Giuseppe Oliveri, neurosurgeon at the Santa Maria alle Scotte hospital in Siena where Zanardi was taken after the accident.

His condition was described as serious but stable.

"The operation went as it should have, it was the original situation that was not good," said Oliveri, who performed surgery on Zanardi on Friday. "What the prognosis will be tomorrow, in a week, in 15 days, I don't know."

The 53-year-old leg-amputated Italian was on a handbike near the city of Pienza in Tuscany when the accident happened, a police spokesman said. Zanardi was taken to a nearby hospital by helicopter. At first, there were no details of the severity of his injuries.

Ex-Formula One driver Alex Zanardi , who had both legs amputated in a motor racing accident almost 20 years ago before going on to become a Paralympic champion, was in an "extremely serious condition " in hospital on Friday after crashing into a truck while competing in a handbike race in Italy.

"Serious means he’s in a situation where he could die, in these cases improvements can be very small over time and worsening can be sudden."

The Italian news agency ANSA reported sources saying the accident involved a truck on a state highway near the town of Pienza to the south-east of Siena.

He had been competing in the "Obiettivo Tricolore" road race for Italian paralympic athletes at the time.

Zanardi is an inspirational figure in the worlds of motorsport and paralympic endeavour, a hugely popular and positive competitor who returned from life-changing injuries with a smile.

He had both legs amputated above the knee, with his heart stopping seven times as he lost all but a litre of the blood in his body, after the horrific crash at the Lausitzring in Germany on Sept. 15, 2001. (Reporting by Stephen Jewkes, writing by Brian Homewood, editing by Ed Osmond)
