Nelson Philippe continues to recover from his Infineon Raceway crash with Will Power after being released from hospital on Tuesday. The French driver, who sustained a heavy side-on impact from the Australian, is now at home in South Florida having been housed in California's Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital since Saturday.
Having spun just after the crest of the hill at Infineon's Turn 3a, the Conquest car - which stood sideways on the race track - was first clipped by E.J. Viso before being t-boned a high speed by the Power's Penske.
Having sustained a broken leg and impaling his left foot on the car's brake pedal, Philippe underwent surgery for his foot which involved the washing out and repairing of a fracture; further investigation revealed the 23-year-old to have picked up a hairline fracture of his right fibula (outer bone of leg, between knee and ankle).
Both drivers are on their ways to making full recoveries after immediately being concussed in the incident; Power, 29, is due to be transported to Indianapolis at the end of the week in order to be examined by orthopaedic specialist Dr. Terry Tramell after losing two front teeth as a result of hitting his car's steering wheel.
Replays of the crash can be viewed below:
