This seems to have started a wee bit earlier than usual, no?

Anyway... to add some speculation, this article doesn't clarify whether this is a third AMSP car, or whether Rosenqvist might be on the way out. It *seems to imply that Rossi is adding to the existing line-up - but I guess we'll see. O'Ward of course is confirmed on a multi-year deal, so he'll still be around.

I hope it is a 3rd car. Felix is currently in the top 10 in drivers standings despite not having the most solid year.

I don't think 3rd vs Rossi replacing Rosenqvist has been settled. It sounds like without a great finish and some funding they might be a 2 car with occasional 3rd car program. But Zak had been making noise about moving up to a 3 car for the last year and a better 3rd really isn't out there.

But where will he race? I guess at the very least 3rd car for Indy? Maybe full season 3rd car?

McLaren’s announcement went on to stated that “the full Arrow McLaren SP and McLaren Formula E 2023 driver line-ups will be confirmed in due course.”

From the end of the Racer article, hope he likes electric cars at least part time. I would guess Indy and FE likely but Zak been making a racket about 3 cars and Vuse has a leg up with Juul being booted from US sales this morning.

Ganassi and McLaren both claiming Palou for 2023.



https://racer.com/2022/07/12/ganassi...ices-for-2023/


I would like to know what Palou sees as a better opportunity at McLaren? Is it the possibility of a chance at F1? AMSP has performed at a much better level recently, but they don't have the consistent top 5 results that CGR has this season. By my count CGR drivers have 11 top 5 finishes this year compared to AMSP's 5. Granted that CGR regularly has 3 drivers competing for those spots where AMSP has only 2, but CGR still looks like a stronger team even though Honda seems to be a bit behind Chevrolet this year.

Erm yes, Ganassi far better option atm.
Unless of course Alex feels Ericcson is getting a better deal on track, in addition to Scott being team leader aa such?

If I was Pato i'd be wondering why the team isn't focussed more on getting the engineering and strategy as good as it can be for the current drivers instead of messing about in the market.

Won the championship at CGR, maybe needs a new challenge as well... Possibly doesnt like the fact Ericsson won the Indy 500 and leads the series

It's like IndyCar got inspired by F1 and chose to focus on off-track drama.

An interesting article from Marshall Pruett, on the AMSP-Palou-CGR conundrum.

the big question now is, who will replace Alex Palou or (what's more likely I think) will Ganassi go down to 3 fulltime cars?
