Sebastien Bourdais has been given the all clear by doctors to return to racing after his massive crash in the lead up to the Indy 500.

Making the announcement on Twitter, Bourdais confirmed that he had returned to Indianapolis for his final appointment with doctors to get the green light to return to the drivers seat after the 118G impact that fractured his pelvis and broke his hip.

The crash saw Bourdais spend five days in hospital where he undertook surgery for the injuries.

The Frenchman has already spent some time behind the wheel of an IndyCar since the accident, testing at Mid-Ohio after the most recent round of the championship.

Even though Bourdais has already announced that he won’t return to racing on ovals before the end of the year, the news does open the option for a possible return at up the upcoming road course races at Watkins Glen and Sonoma in September.
