Sebastien Bourdais has been given the all clear by doctors to return to racing just three months after fracturing his hip and pelvis in qualifying for the Indianapolis 500.

Bourdais crashed out at high-speed during his qualifying attempt for the Indy 500, leaving him in need of surgery and extensive rehabilitation.

The Dale Coyne Racing driver had set a target of returning at the IndyCar season finale at Sonoma on September 17, but enjoyed his first set back in an Indycar at Mid-Ohio at the end of last month.

Bourdais announced via Twitter on Tuesday night he had now received the all clear to return to racing from his doctors.

Four races remain on the IndyCar calendar for 2017, with the next race taking place this weekend at Pocono Raceway.

Bourdais’ seat at Dale Coyne Racing was taken by ex-F1 racer Esteban Gutierrez, while Indy Lights champion Ed Jones races the sister Honda car.
