Bourdais Confirmed With Coyne

Dale Coyne Racing announced this morning the signing of Sebastien Bourdais to the team's flagship entry in 2017.

Bourdais is returning to the team that brought him back to America following his F1 stint in 2011. Of almost equal newsworthiness is the signing of Olivier Boisson, who engineered Bourdais at KV, and addition of Craig Hampson, who joined Coyne after leaving Andretti.

“Back in 2011, Dale was the one who gave me the opportunity to come back to IndyCar, and I’m looking forward to a very exciting second stint with his team," said Bourdais. "Thanks to Dale’s leadership and unconditional commitment to the series, we have been able to assemble a great group of guys, including Olivier Boisson, my race engineer for the last three years, as well as my former lead engineer from the Newman/Haas Racing days, Craig Hampson. The addition of these two great minds and friends, to Dale Coyne Racing’s existing group, will undoubtedly give me a great chance at running up front with a competitive car.”
