Six-time Indy 500 starter Pippa Mann joins Marshall Pruett as guest host of the #WeekinIndyCar podcast to discuss the announcement of Michael Shank Racing and Schmidt Peterson Motorsports partnering to field Jack Harvey, the intra-team swap of Marco Andretti and Alexander Rossi, the confirmation of Carlin Racing’s two-car program for Max Chilton and Charlie Kimball, SPM formally abandoning its Indy 500 plans with Didier Calmels and its interest in hiring Le Mans-winning engineer Leena Gade, and the final test days of the year at Sebring that are under way.

The two close by covering almost two hours of fan Q&A as Mann, who took a vocal stand against the FIA’s dubious appointment of Carmen Jorda to its Women in Motorsports Commission, shares her thoughts on the situation and fields a number of impressive questions–along with one that was decidedly unfiltered–during a long stint with MP.
