Graham Rahal and Romain Grosjean’s collision and subsequent post-race spat is the main topic of conversation on this edition of The Race IndyCar Podcast, which looks back on an epic weekend at Barber Motorsports Park.

JR Hildebrand breaks down Grosjean and Rahal’s wheel-banging incident from a drivers’ perspective, while co-host Jack Benyon gives his view on why Rahal went too far in his post-race comments - even if more rivalry between drivers in IndyCar is welcome.

The boys also discuss Arrow McLaren SP’s start to the season in the wake of a tide-turning victory for Pato O’Ward, who’s triumph comes off the back of headlines about going to 'war' with his team in trying to agree a new contract.

The podcast also looks at Penske’s decision not to test pre-race, Rinus VeeKay’s pole and where he compares to Josef Newgarden who previously won races for Ed Carpenter, plus there's an explanation of the two key strategies that defined the race.
