Episode #447: 2023 IndyCar Detroit Grand Prix Review

Jun 12, 2023, 07:23 PM

Detroit was a wild one, and this time it was for all the right reasons... mostly. The new street circuit down Jefferson Avenue was an awful layout but made for some decent recent in the end. But one thing still remains clear. Alex Palou is still HIM. His first ever Street Circuit win now puts in the drivers seat for the $1m bonus and he at times looked DOMINANT in a 74 lap leading charge. Dre and Cam make the most of the performance!

We also talk about a potential referendum on McLaren after Pato O'Ward made another big blunder, crashing into the wall while trying to pass Santucci. Alongside Felix Rosenqvist pushing Alexander Rossi into the wall, just what is going on with a team that should now be contending?

And we get into the big news of Conor Daly being fired from Ed Carpenter Racing after a poor, but not outlandishly bad run of form, with Ryan Hunter-Reay coming out of retirement to race the #20 instead. Is there more to it than what it appears?

All that and more on another loaded Motorsport101!
