Felix Rosenqvist cleared to drive, will race Mid-Ohio

Felix Rosenqvist has now been cleared to return to the cockpit and will race this weekend in his No. 7 Chevy at Mid-Ohio, according to his Arrow McLaren SP team.

Rosenqvist had a massive one-car crash in Race 1 on Belle Isle on June 12 when his car malfunctioned and kept him unable to slow headed for a tire barrier. Rosenqvist tore through nine stacks of tires while slamming the barrier at more than 100 mph, sending some over the catch-fence, and his car came to a stop around a 45-degree angle propped up against the barrier.

IndyCar driver Felix Rosenqvist (7) climbs into the cockpit of his car on the second day of open testing Friday, April 9, 2021, ahead of the Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Rosenqvist was then removed from the cockpit by the AMR safety team and rolled to an ambulance on a stretcher. He was initially looked over by IndyCar’s medical team at the track’s infield care center and deemed not to have any major injuries, but was still sent to DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital later that day for an overnight evaluation. Rosenqvist was released Sunday morning, but he was not cleared to return to the car for IndyCar’s June 20 race at Road America. Details on his specific injuries that kept him out of that race have not been released.
