Hinchcliffe released from hospital

James Hinchcliffe's impressive recovery will now continue from home.

After spending a week in IU Health Methodist Hospital, Verizon IndyCar Series driver James Hinchcliffe has been released. The Schmidt Peterson Motorsports pilot underwent surgery on his upper left thigh and pelvis after an injury sustained in an Indy 500 practice crash.

During the incident, a piece of suspension went through his legs and he suffered 'life-threatening' blood loss. Due to the quick work of the Holmatro Safety Team, he was able to stand on his own within a few days of the impact.

He will now continue his rehab from home and is expected to make a full recovery. Ryan Briscoe drove his car to a 12th-place finish in the 500 and Conor Daly will take over at Belle Isle.
