Alex Palou destroying the opposition, a wild weekend for record-breaking Romain Grosjean and a controversial yellow flag trend make up the talking points of this week’s The Race IndyCar Podcast.

JR Hildebrand and Jack Benyon are back together and analyse how Palou came out on top of two prevailing strategies that certainly made the win tougher for the two-time champion used to dominating at this track.

They also assess his title credentials and who might be the favourite with a host of ovals and the new hybrid unit ready to shake things up.

Grosjean’s rise up the order to Juncos Hollinger’s best IndyCar finish is also on the agenda, as is the trend of IndyCar delaying a yellow flag to avoid cars being caught out and not allowed to pit, although in this instance it gave an enormous advantage to a 2024 race winner.

The hosting duo also assess how David Malukas returning from a wrist injury with a new team, and his 'replacement' Nolan Siegel - via Theo Pourchaire - got on in their new homes.
