Mikhail Aleshin has been released from hospital to continue his recovery from injuries sustained in a crash during practice for the IndyCar season finale at Fontana two weeks ago.
The Russian, who suffered a concussion, chest injuries, fractured ribs and a broken clavicle (collarbone) in the crash last month, was transferred to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis from Loma Linda Medical Center in California early last week, and was released home on Tuesday.
He will remain in Indianapolis to continue his rehabilitation under the supervision of IndyCar medical staff.
"I'm feeling better each day," said the Schmidt Peterson Motorsport driver, who is expected to make a full recovery. "I'm very happy to be back in Indianapolis with my friends and the team. The doctors are taking very good care of me.
"Everything is going as planned with my recovery, and before you know it I'll be back behind the steering wheel."
