Four talking points from the 2021 Indy 500

‘Spider-man’ climbs again! At 46, a dozen years since he last won the Indianapolis 500, Hélio Castroneves rolled back the years on Sunday to see off the challenge from a man nearly half his age and join AJ Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears as a four-time winner of the great American motor race. The Brazilian then clambered up the debris fence in signature style to scream with joy at the roaring masses, who had returned to The Brickyard after Covid-19 kept them away last year. A perfect motor sport moment in every way.
