The 25-year-old driver won the title in IndyCar

In the upcoming F1 season, Palou will be McLaren’s third driver. At the same time, he will be the lead driver for the Chip Galassi team in Indycar. “I think I got the best of both worlds and we will try to win another championship in Indycar,” his words to Movistar+

The 25-year-old Spanish driver knows why he was chosen as McLaren’s third driver: “Do I think much about F1? Not at all. Of course I am aware that Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport, which is why I took the opportunity to join an F1 team, albeit as a test driver. But at the same time, at the end of the day, my job is to think about winning. If I had not won IndyCar, they would not have given me a chance in Formula 1.”
