(AP) — Romain Grosjean is thriving in his move from Formula One to IndyCar and has again found his passion for racing.

He struggled for nine seasons in F1 before he was nearly killed in a fiery crash in Bahrain in November — it was his final F1 race. He now drives for Dale Coyne Racing in IndyCar.

He finished second in his third start last month before returning home to watch the Indianapolis 500 on television with his family. He found he missed the series so much that he now plans to race the oval at Gateway near St. Louis in August.
