Motor sports: the weather gets out of control

Nashville, Tenn. ( Associated Press) – Fernando Alonso is to blame for all this mess, right?

Or was it IndyCar champion Alex Palu?

Maybe the fault lies with McLaren Racing boss Zack Brown? Because he’s racked up the payroll with almost anyone who can drive a car in a season, with results spanning three categories, all over the world, and at least one court.

Palu probably did the initial stitching several months ago. Chip Ganassi said he had taken the Spaniard’s contract option for next season, but the driver declined the press release, saying he would not return in 2023. Minutes later, McLaren said it had signed Palau.

Ganassi has launched a lawsuit against Palau, who insists he will race for McLaren next season, and everyone on the IndyCar payroll is dodging as each race weekend brings a new twist to the courtroom drama .

But then Alonso raised the stakes when Aston Martin stunned the Formula One world by announcing on Monday that it had signed the two-time world champion. Alonso did not consider it necessary to inform his current team, which assumed that he was returning to Alpine for another year.

Alpine had to act quickly and the next day said it was promoting its reserve driver to Alonso’s job. So Oscar Piastri did as Palu did – his tweet dismissing Alpine’s F1 job was a copy of Palu – and said he would not drive for the team.

McLaren has yet to confirm the 21-year-old Australian’s arrival, but it appears he has already filed all contractual paperwork before Alonso left Alpine. Now that McLaren is in talks for the departure of its F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo, Palu is in limbo. Legal and Felix Rosenquist have no idea whether he will keep his IndyCar job with Arrow McLaren SP or if he will be sent to Formula E to be replaced by Palau.

With only four races left in the most exciting IndyCar season in decades, with six drivers vying for the title, all attention is focused on the contract drama and who will drive next season.
