MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) McLaren Racing has a hotel room booked in Singapore next week for Alex Palou, who contractually is expected to be the team's Formula One reserve driver for the remainder of the year.

Zak Brown doesn't expect the room to be used.

The CEO of McLaren Racing doesn't know for sure that Palou won't show up - he's yet to hear from the Spaniard, who informed McLaren through attorneys last month that he would not be honoring his 2024 contract with the team in IndyCar or F1.
