Multiple IndyCar champion and former Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Bourdais has been cleared to return to IndyCar duty, just over three months after his horrific 118G Indy 500 crash. Initially expected to be sitting out the remainder of the 2017 IndyCar season, Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais has taken to social media to confirm doctors have passed the 38 year old driver fit to resume his racing career with immediate effect, ending what has been a remarkable recovery from what appeared to be a potentially career ending accident during qualifying for May's Indy 500 showcase event. Bourdais would leave the Indianapolis Motor Speedway under medical assistance with fractures to his pelvis and a broken hip, following a terrifying 230 mph accident on the legendary oval venue. Bourdais would lose control of his Dale Coyne run Dallara DW12 at turn two, making contact with the wall and flipping the car upside down before eventually coming to rest right side up further down the circuit. Sustaining 118G worth of impact forces, many at the time believed Bourdais fortunate to escape without more serious injuries to the on form driver, with only five days hospital care required before he shipped back home to begin a tough recovery process. Reports at the time suggested Bourdais would remain away from the cockpit for the entirety of 2017, however following a brief test last month, the driver has now confirmed a return to racing is already back on the cards, with a potential drive at Watkins Glen and Sonoma lined up next month.
