The Race IndyCar Podcast is back for 2024 with an interview with one of the surprises of the silly season and more listeners’ tech questions answered.

At one stage Alex Palou looked nailed on to drive for Arrow McLaren in IndyCar this year but a change of heart meant McLaren had to move quickly to snap up a replacement.

It settled on young prospect David Malukas, who joins the show for the first time as a McLaren driver.

He talks about what is expected of him at McLaren given he is Palou’s replacement, where he needs to step up in 2024 and delights in conning co-host Jack Benyon with his Photoshop skills.

Ace engineer Charlie Ping re-joins the show to follow up on more listeners' questions about tech matters.

We discuss what a shaker rig is, what the difference in approach is between an F1 engineer and an IndyCar engineer, the intricacies of pack racing and how to acclimatise to a new track in IndyCar.

You can leave feedback, ask questions and get in touch with the show via podcasts@the-race.com.
