Fernando Alonso is arguably Formula 1’s unluckiest double World Champion, but is he motorsport’s most disruptive force right now?

His exploits at the 101st Indianapolis 500 almost stole the limelight away from Formula 1, Monaco, Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel. Can the current and next generation of racers take inspiration from his move? Has Alonso’s target of the ‘Triple Crown of Motorsport’ suddenly brought it back into the spotlight? Will there be more drivers gunning for this crown?

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal discuss how easily and with open arms the Indy 500 welcomed Fernando Alonso. Would Formula 1 ever be able to replicate this gesture to any of the Indy 500 drivers?

At motorsport’s BIGGEST weekend ever, was there conspiracy at both the iconic races? A Japanese driver won in the Honda car in a team sponsored by a Japanese company whereas in Monaco, we all know how the Ferrari-Räikkonen-Vettel overcut strategy brought out the conspiracy theorists. Congrats to Haas for their double points finish, by the way.

Finally, we’d love for Lewis Hamilton to participate in the Indy 500 rather than doubt the existing talent there. Tune in!
