Sebastien Bourdais: in the year after the shipwreck, IMS is driving “surprisingly good” for a year


Indianapolis – Sebastian boerdes admits he isn’t sure how he felt when he entered the second round of the Indianapolis circuit on Monday.
This is almost a year ago in Indianapolis 500 qualifying, when Bourdais at a speed of 232 miles lost control of his car in a nasty crash hit his hip and pelvis.
Since then, he turns the Indy racing in a – at the end of the 2017 season three games back and won the playoffs start in st Petersburg – Bourdais on Monday to test his game on May 27, the first circle almost ended his career.
“Surprisingly, that’s not bad,” Bourdais said after the test of 221 miles in the morning. “I don’t know how I’m going to deal with it, and the first time I flip the second round again, you don’t know if you’re going to get a flash or something, but there’s really no such thing.
“I’m more awake and trying to make sure you hear every little voice and every feeling you have, and make sure you don’t repeat the mistake. Now, we’re far from reaching the limit, so I’m not too worried. ”
‘don’t avoid seeing where he crashed,’ the Frenchman said.
“You force yourself to try to solve all the problems, and the psychological problems that come with it,” Mr. Buldeis said. “Obviously, it was a perfect day… This is a place where you have to run flat to feel anything.
“You have to work very fast.”
On Monday, the first full-court test of the new IndyCar body in 2018, the front wing has been reshaped and the pod has moved forward to create a longer look. The hood was low, and the rear bumpers had disappeared. The redesign includes enhanced protection that adds 8 to 10 inches of broken structure on both sides of the car.
“It doesn’t change the fact that you don’t want to do more than 220,” Bourdais said. “But I think the squeeze structure might save my hip and my pelvis, and be prepared for what they do in the IndyCar team.

“It’s a dangerous game, you don’t know what you don’t know, and you always react to bad accidents and try to make it safer. But when you’re traveling without a safe movement we’re traveling at a speed that you just need to be aware of. ”
In Tuesday’s game, the rookies will continue to test, and in the afternoon, they will not take part in the all-day race, such as Danica Patrick. Several drivers will return to the manufacturer’s test on Wednesday.
Hamilton was the first to admit that victory for the first time in 2018, he played in accident case, the teammates Valtteri Bottas ended up with four laps at the end of the game after the match, in the last few laps ahead. The ceremony itself was postponed because Hamilton chose to find his teammates in the Mercedes to negotiate with him and return to the podium.
The reigning world champion was restrained when he arrived, which he said highlighted the psychological differences between many of his rivals.
“It’s a lottery game, whether you use the word ‘talent’ or not, I don’t know if I’m going to use it, but it’s a lucky game for me,” Hamilton said. “I stand on the podium, think Valtteri should stand in there, because I think he has won the game, so when you don’t want to so will certainly be different, what do you think that someone else wins.
“For a few days I have been on the podium, I have lost a grand prix, and has brought gift to others, whether in here a few drivers, or had left one of the driver. The joy they have, whether they win or not, their fingers in the air… My route is different, I can do it today, I still win, you get it.
“But I like to win because I’ve outdone it and I’ve surpassed every driver.”
Hamilton says his success resonated with all of his racing career.
“Is this really reminded me that it’s not that I need to remind, but my life have I experienced this experience as it is today, you are climbing the mountain, and you just have been falling, ‘I want to go there, I want to go there, I want to go there. ‘
“I remember my father told me, when I was really young, and have implemented today, I never give up, thus affecting all the life, when you try to succeed, you try, you try, you fail, you try, you fail, then you will succeed, and indeed proved it today, it is influenced by other things, of course. “
