Dutch racing driver Rinus Veekay has been released from Indianapolis' medical centre, after he crashed his IndyCar at Turn 1 during Thursday's Open Test at the venue.
Driving for Ed Carpenter Racing this year, Veekay touched the grass and lost control as he flew through the banking. Slamming into the barriers at high speed, Veekay could be seen gingerly climbing from the car and was taken for precautionary checks to the medical centre.
He has revealed that he has a broken finger as a result of the crash.
"I'm OK," Veekay explained to media after being released from the circuit's medical centre.
"A little beat up, but I'm alright, I can drive again.
"I want to say sorry to the team, I wanted to do as many laps as possible. Very very unfortunate, and I'm very sorry but it was a very weird moment.
"It felt good on entry, but the front dipped down and I lost it. Once that happens, you're a passenger."
