I’d be surprised if they didn’t finish out the season together. I don’t think either are interested in another breach of contract.I thought both sides would be at least professional enough to allow CGR and Palou to finish the season together, now I'm not so sure.
TK will be racing Stock Car Brasil at Interlagos this weekend.
Might wind up like Monisha Kaltenborn before long.Zak has the dangling carrot of F1, but with Herta/O'Ward/Palou all being "test drivers" for him leads to many concerns of the synergy around this team. Zak cannot be giving out false hope like this.
Pato is already bruised from seeing Colton gaining all of this traction... Too many drivers on the ship for my liking at McLaren.
“I think many drivers thought we knew who he was,” O’Ward said. “I feel like he’ll say a lot of things but then he does the complete opposite, which I don’t think is a secret. We’ve all seen it. It kind of seems like reverse psychology, so whatever he’s saying, expect the absolute difference.”
Asked if he can still win the championship amid all the distractions, Palou said “it will be amazing when I do.”
They sure do keep playing up this F1 angle.
Excellent pairing.Dale Coyne is “99 percent sure” of retaining star rookie David Malukas and two-time Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato next year, but would be keen to expand to three entries.www.motorsport.com
In a change of philosophy the series reportedly wants to expand to 20 races in the coming years. Penske had previously said 17 or 18 was the sweet spot, iirc. The Milwaukee Mile and a Mexican track are favored to join the calendar in 2024/2025.
I’m glad Penske is changing course some, I desperately hope the Freedom 100 comes back eventually as well, they already run Iowa & Gateway anyway…..
Pocono might be more likely to have success now that NASCAR has only one weekend there. They always had a pretty dense summer before, and their one weekend last week was pretty full.The Milwaukee Mile, Mexico, Pocono (with the new aeroscreen) would be my choices if they want to get back to 20 races. Maybe they’re doing a doubleheader somewhere. I think The Mile & Mexico are solid additions.
Make Texas a 500 mile race and have Texas, Indianapolis, Pocono as the Triple Crown 500 again.

Mexico would be a nice way to get the season going earlier, the ramp up to May is usually pretty slow.
Maybe I'm dumb but what does him being a citizen of Spain have to do with anything? He signed a contract and doesn't want to honor it.OMG!

What Is Diversity of Citizenship?Diversity of citizenship refers to cases where opposing parties involved in a lawsuit are citizens of different states or countries. If one of these parties is a corporation, they are defined as a citizen of the state where their business operates or is incorporated. If diversity of citizenship is in play, a case between two parties will fall under federal court jurisdiction, per Article III, section 2 of the United States Constitution.
Rosenqvist has re-upped with McLaren, however its TBA if he's going to stay in IndyCar or move to the new Formula E team:
Reached last week by RACER to ask if Rosenqvist was under contract for 2023, a McLaren Racing spokesperson declined to comment.
The exact reason behind positioning Rosenqvist as being signed to a non-existent extension is unknown. One possible angle would involve McLaren’s ongoing attempts to land Palou to replace Rosenqvist in the No. 7 Chevy and wanting to protect its opportunity to use Rosenqvist as a fallback option.
RACER understands that if Palou’s contract with Ganassi for 2023 is enforced by a federal judge, McLaren will keep Rosenqvist in IndyCar. But amid the uncertainty of whether Palou or Rosenqvist will occupy the car next season, a press release that diverts attention away from Rosenqvist as a target could, in theory, be beneficial to McLaren as the legal process plays out.
Apparently this was a ploy? Jesus H.
