The latest episode of Pit Pass Indy features INDYCAR’s “Flying Frenchmen” – Romain Grosjean of Andretti Autosport and Simon Pagenaud of Meyer-Shank Racing.
Both drivers are on new teams for 2022. Grosjean is a 10-year Formula One veteran who came to INDYCAR in 2021 driving for Dale Coyne Racing with RWR. After an impressive rookie season, the 35-year-old Grosjean has joined the powerful Andretti Autosport operation, driving the famed No. 28 DHL Honda in every race on the schedule, including his first-ever appearance in the Indianapolis 500 on May 29.
Pagenaud won the 2016 NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship and the 2019 Indianapolis 500 with Team Penske. After seven seasons at Team Penske, Pagenaud has moved over to Meyer-Shank Racing for 2022. The INDYCAR season hasn’t even started yet, and Pagenaud has already won a major race. He was one of the four drivers in the No. 60 Acura DPi that was the overall winner of the 60th Rolex 24 at Daytona Sports Car Race January 29-30. It was Pagenaud’s first win in the Rolex 24.
Pit Pass Indy host Bruce Martin interviewed both Grosjean and Pagenaud at INDYCAR’s “Content Days” at the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Indianapolis.
