Bring Back V10s: How Mansell conquered IndyCar

by Matt Beer
1 min read

For a week in 1993, Nigel Mansell was both reigning Formula 1 world champion and champion of what was then known as the CART Indycar World Series.

Our Bring Back V10s podcast detours from its usual F1 territory temporarily – just as Mansell did – to celebrate his extraordinary 1993 career change.

Karun Chandhok and Edd Straw join Glenn Freeman to explore Mansell’s title win with Newman/Haas, while veteran US motorsport journalist Curt Cavin shares his memories of covering that incredible season for the Indianapolis Star.

The often underestimated severity of the back injury Mansell was coping with for much of the season, what he enjoyed most about IndyCar and why he was actually stronger on ovals than the road and street courses are among the topics tackled.
