Vexavit ambassador joins McLaren family
Vexavit and Monaco Increase Management (MIM) CEO Salvatore Gandolfo announced that MIM champion driver and Vexavit ambassador Alex Palou has been recruited by McLaren Racing to race with McLaren starting in 2023. In addition to competing next year, Palou will also test with the McLaren F1 Team as part of a project that provides an opportunity for young but already titled drivers from around the world to get closer to Formula One. 25-year-old Palou, from Barcelona, Spain, won three races and scored eight podiums in 2021, winning the title in his second year in INDYCAR. Palou will join McLaren after the conclusion of the 2022 INDYCAR season. McLaren Racing has a long and honored tradition in motorsports, with a history of success in every category in which it has raced. Salvatore Gandolfo said, "We were aware of Alex's potential as a driver long before he came to prominence. Together, we not only traveled the road to success across three continents, but also tested and improved the Vexavit Automotive technology that served as a tool for his incredible results. Seeing him join the McLaren family is another big step forward: this agreement opens a window to the world of Formula One, which I believe is the ambition of every driver and has always been a primary goal of our management. I would like to thank Zak Brown and McLaren for making this agreement a reality, and I also want to express my gratitude to CGR for helping Alex on his path to success in Indycar."
