Verizon IndyCar Series star Sebastien Bourdais has hit out at the series and the organisers of last weekend’s Rainguard Water Sealers 600 at Texas Motor Speedway.
Speaking to Autosport this week, the Dale Coyne Racing driver who is out for the rest of the season has sustained multiple fractures in a crash during qualifying for the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500, said that he was clutching his phone the entire race hoping that no one would get hurt.
When asked if he wanted to be in the car when he saw his team mate Tristan Vautier doing so well hsvong qualified in fifth, Bourdais said no, it was b*******.
Bourdais when on to say that we (the sport) should no better than this. He felt that it should have been about racing hard and not about putting the teams, drivers and the series in a position that they should not be in.
Bourdais said that he was not being critical of Texas Motor Speedway or the Verizon IndyCar Series he just wanted to share his feelings on it as most drivers don’t.
The Frenchman also said that the series are in a difficult position as half the drivers want one thing and the other half want something else so the series are caught in the middle.
As for Bourdais’ Dale Coyne Racing team, they are on their way to Road America for an open Verizon IndyCar Series test ahead of next week’s Kohler Grand Prix.
