Welcome to an extended edition of Motorsport101, because quite frankly, we didn’t think Monaco was worth a full episode of the show, but it made for a fine Keepin’ It 101 opening segment. So if you want to skip to the Indy 500, fast forward to 19:20.

In that opening segment, we praise Charles Leclerc for winning the Monaco Grand Prix in dominant fashion over Oscar Piastri and Carlos Sainz, while also casting an eye on a chaotic Lap 1, with Sergio Perez in a huge accident with both Haas drivers, and the Alpine’s of Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly colliding again at Portier.

Then we get into the 108th Running of the Indy 500, with Josef Newgarden and Pato O’Ward going head-to-head for the win once again, with Josef going back-to-back for 500 wins for the first time since 2002. We talk about how they did it, as well as the polarising characters of Newgarden and O’Ward in 2024, something guest host RyanErikKing called “This generations Foyt and Andretti.”

We also talk about the big winners and losers of the race, such as Kyle Larson, Alex Palou, Christian Rasmussen and Conor Daly, and some of the drivers who struggled like Will Power and Honda as a engine supplier in general. And we deal with the breaking news of Tom Blomqvist being benched at Meyer Shank Racing for the return of Helio Castroneves.

All that and more in the next Motorsport101!
