It’s the one-year anniversary episode for the Week In IndyCar on the Marshall Pruett Podcast, and we have my original co-host Robin Miller, reigning IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden, and four-time Champ Car title-winning race engineer Craig Hampson here to celebrate and discuss the big Phoenix Open Test. 

After Phoenix, Newgarden answers plenty of fan Q&A, starting with Josef’s interest in F1, the pass he pulled on Team Penske teammate Simon Pagenaud at Gateway, and which driver(s) he’d like to have as a teammate in the future standing out among many great inquiries.

For Hampson, who serves as Sebastien Bourdais’ engineer at Dale Coyne Racing, thoughts on engine development for 2018, the addition of Jimmy Vasser and James Sullivan to DCR, lingering feelings on Seb’s big Indy crash, a great Paul Newman story from his time with Bourdais at Newman/Haas Racing, and his opinions on Kurt Busch’s talent in an Indy car after running him at the 2014 Indy 500 for Andretti Autosport are part of the first episode for Year 2 of the Week In IndyCar podcast.
