Herta no longer thinks about F1

Written by ebookingservices

the future of Colton Hertha on the Formula 1 it seems to be destined to be a siren’s song, and the Indy driver himself assumes that at the moment the American single-seaters are his place. First the FIA denied the super license, an essential requirement to participate in F1, to the pilot of Andretti by “not having the required points”, and now it has been the pilot himself who admits that his immediate plans go through the Great Circus: “It looks like the F1 thing has run its course, and it looks like there won’t be a chance.which I’m fine with”, explains the American to Racer.com

Hertha carried out a test last summer with the McLaren MCL35 and there was speculation about his signing by Alpha Taurusoccupying the seat of Pierre Gasley if he left the team Faenzaas it will happen, signing the French for Alpine., transfer that will become official in the next few hours. And everything indicates that De Vries, after his great performance in Monza, will be in charge of driving Red Bull’s sister car. Another way for Hertha had a car pointed to the landing of Andretti as the eleventh team, something that at the moment does not seem close.

And with this panorama, Herta prefers to focus on his championship, but he does not rule out that there are new opportunities in the future: “F1 was something that, honestly, I was eager to try, and I could still try it in the future. Things in F1 seem to have settled down, and that’s probably the end of it. At least by 2023. The IndyCar It was never like a backup plan or anything like that. I am always very happy to be here and drive an Indy car. It is a high level and competitive racing series. And it’s a joy to drive those. They have a good power-to-weight ratio and excellent tyres, making it a fun car to drive”, concludes Herta.
