Dale Coyne Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais has confirmed that he is targeting a return to racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series before the end of the season.

The Frenchman has been released from hospital just days after suffering multiple fractures to his pelvis, a broken hip and a fractured rib as a result of his accident during qualifying last Saturday for this weekend’s 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.

Bourdais has confirmed that he will not be able to put weight on his right leg for six weeks which would lead him up to the first week of July, but that would just mark the start of returning to training for the Frenchman.

Speaking following the accident, his team boss Dale Coyne said that he told Bourdais to wait until next season to come back but the four time champion is a racer and wants to get back in the car as soon as possible.
