It’s a mammoth episode of The Race IndyCar Podcast this week as Romain Grosjean’s IndyCar reprieve at Juncos after being dropped by Andretti is analysed in detail.
Indy Lights champion JR Hildebrand is back alongside The Race’s Jack Benyon, as they assess Grosjean’s time in IndyCar so far and whether he has done enough to earn this second chance. Could it be that he’s found the perfect level here?
Of course, how Grosjean might adapt to this team off-track and how the social media abuse Callum Ilott received during his stint there might impact the 'hater-resistant' Grosjean forms a topic for debate.
Hildebrand also goes into detail on what it’s like to have to alter your inherent driving style with some fascinating behind-the-visor insight, amid the question of whether the understeer-averse Grosjean will be able to adapt to Juncos’s car.
Ilott leaving the team is also addressed, along with how the big move impacts the rest of the seats still available in silly season.
