Alex Palou is expected to move to Arrow McLaren SP in 2024 once his deal to remain in Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 10 expires next year.

The 2021 IndyCar champion has been at the center of a legal battle between McLaren and Ganassi this year after signing with the former, only for his current team to announce it is retaining his services for next season.

The Spaniard initially insisted he would not race for Ganassi, but an agreement was eventually reached that would see Palu remain in the No.10 car for 2023, while Felix Rosenqvist remains at AMSP alongside Pato O’Ward and Alexander Rosy, as it expands to three eye records.

RACER now understands that the deal does not spell the end of Paul’s plans to move to McLaren, but instead merely delays his possible move until 2024. Until then, he will maintain links with McLaren through the Formula 1 testing program, part of which led to him testing the 2021 Formula 1 car in Barcelona last month.

While Rosenqvist’s future was only decided after Palu was confirmed to stay with Ganassi in 2023, Palu’s move in 2024 does not necessarily mean that one of the team’s current drivers will be replaced after next season , with the possibility of McLaren increasing to four -cars by 2024, engine permitting.

Palu is also in the frame to compete in FP1 for McLaren this season as part of his F1 agreement while still a Ganassi driver. However, the team is yet to confirm its plans, despite having to field rookies twice in the remaining five races after this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix.
