Sebastian Bourdais has undergone successful surgery on a fractured pelvis following a crash during qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 on Saturday.
Bourdais had just turned two laps with an average speed of over 231 mph in his No. 18 Dale Coyne Racing Honda when the rear end of his car stepped out in Turn 2. The French driver overcorrected and he made hard contact with the outside SAFER barrier which sent his car into a roll and on fire.
Bourdais was extracted by the safety crew and taken to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with multiple fractures to his pelvis and a fracture to his right hip.
