Social media reacts to massive Alex Palou-ChipGanassi-McLaren mess

Racing Twitter was set ablaze Tuesday night as controversy arose over the battle between Chip Ganassi Racing and McLaren F1’s claim to 2021 INDYCAR champion Alex Palou.

Late Tuesday afternoon, CGR issued a media release and tweet that said the team had exercised the lone option year on Palou’s contract. In other words, Palou is contractually obligated to drive for CGR in 2023, the final year of his current three-year deal.

Palou, on the other hand, along with a media release from McLaren saying it had signed the defending IndyCar champ to a deal that begins in 2023, both feel otherwise and that he is not beholden to CGR for one more year.
