I’m excited to announce that @CGRTeams and I have come to an agreement and I’ll be back in the No. 10 car next season! Looking forward to a BIG 2023!” writes the 2021 IndyCar series champion.
The two-month-long legal dispute surrounding Alex Palou’s future started with Chip Ganassi’s announcement. In it, they stated that they had picked up Palou’s team option for the 2023 IndyCar season.
A few hours later, Palou had vehemently disputed the claim saying that it had been made without his consent. Soon after, Arrow McLaren SP announced that they had signed Alex Palou for a multi-year deal starting in 2023. And thus ensued a rough legal battle between the two.

After fighting strongly against going back to Chip Ganassi Racing for 2023, Palou’s recent tweet comes as a surprise. While it is good to hear that the dust has settled, the sudden agreement comes as a shock to many in the community who were aware of Palou’s interest in Arrow McLaren SP.
With Daniel Ricciardo parting ways with McLaren in 2023, this might be a good time to take a look at where McLaren stands for 2023.
