Palou not willing to be mere F1 reserve

2021 Indycar champion Alex Palou says he won’t make a bid to enter Formula 1 full-time by initially accepting a seat as a reserve driver. “I like to win, in Indycar I can win and I can’t complain about that,” Palou told AS newspaper. Palou’s ‘no’ to a reserve seat is despite the fact that he was particularly impressed with the performance of the 2022 McLaren in Austin. Nonetheless, Palou says he drew a line underneath his F1 aspirations “many years ago”. After a contract dispute between McLaren and Indycar rival Chip Ganassi, it was announced that Palou will in fact stay with the latter team in 2023.
