It's been a while since we've heard anything about Sebastien Bourdais. The French driver took the Champ Car title four years running, but when the call came to move up to F1 courtesy of Scuderia Toro Rosso, Bourdais suffered a disappointing stint, prompting his mid-season replacement with rookie driver Jaime Alguersuari.

Bourdais went on to race in Superleague Formula and at Le Mans with Peugeot, but now reports indicate that he could be eying a return to American open-wheel racing in the IndyCar Series that replaced the league he dominated for years.

The Frenchman who made his name in Champ Cars reportedly tested for Dale Coyne Racing this past week, showing promising results with the IndyCar team. While Bourdais may have nothing left to prove in Indy racing, a return to winning form could be just what the doctor ordered for his currently stagnant career.
