Dale Coyne Racing’s Pietro Fittipladi says he is aiming to return to racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series for the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on 29th July after the Brazilian confirmed that his recovery has started ahead of schedule.
Fittiapldi has returned to Indianapolis to recover from the injuries he suffered during qualifying for the Six Hours of Spa Francorchamps last Friday.
The Brazilian broke both his legs in the accident and his recovery is being overseen by chief IndyCar medical adviser Dr Terry Tremmall and specialist Dr Steve Olvey back in Indianapolis.
The Verizon IndyCar Series heads to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for this weekend’s IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the road course layout at the speedway. Team owner Dale Coyne has yet to confirm who will driver the No.19 Honda alongside Vasser/Sullivan Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.18 SealMaster Honda.
On track action begins at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday morning and with no official confirmation on who is driving the No.19 Honda this weekend it is likely we will find out on Friday morning before the opening Verizon IndyCar Series practice session who will be in the car.
