IndyCar podcast: Herta’s heroics, Indy 500 build-up begins

May 16 2022

A tumultuous Indianapolis road course race in the wet and a special driver’s-eye insight into the Indy 500 schedule makes up this week’s The Race IndyCar Podcast.

With Colton Herta taking an audacious win in changeable conditions, many title contenders hitting trouble, and strategy calls deciding the result, The Race’s F1 correspondent Edd Straw joins the podcast having been immersed in the Indy paddock all weekend.

In addition to providing a race breakdown, Straw delves into Romain Grosjean’s reputation from F1 – having covered most of Grosjean’s career – and whether Graham Rahal was right to criticise Grosjean last time out at Barber.

It wouldn’t be The Race IndyCar Podcast without co-host JR Hildebrand and he joins the second half of the show to preview the unique Indy 500 schedule and how driver and team look to extract the maximum from the on-track sessions and manage the downtime to ensure top performance.

As well as a good look at this week’s practice, the podcast also looks ahead to qualifying, plus the new two-stage battle for pole this year and how that might impact the order.
