The young American star of motorsports is about to face a few crucial months to achieve his highest goal as a professional: to drive in the Formula 1 championship. For now, McLaren has offered him to do some tests under the suspicious gaze of Patricio O’Ward. If he passes a good test, Herta could be closer to debuting in the Great Circus.

Herta, judge of her own destiny

The 22-year-old pilot confessed months ago his real interest in participating in the Stefano Domenicali category: “I want to be in Formula 1 at some point in my career, is a great personal ambition. F1 is high on my wish list. He wanted to get to IndyCar and the Indianapolis 500. I still want to win them, I haven’t yet”.

As the weeks go by, the youngest winner of an IndyCar race is better positioned to be fully integrated into the championship run by Liberty Media. However, the secrecy of McLaren reigns in the environment and details of when the famous tests will take place are not yet known: “I’d get in trouble if I revealed the date, so I won’t.. it will be later”, reported Herta: “What I can say is that I will be going to Woking in June to adjust my seat and test in the simulator. The last time I was there was in 2019, I think I completed a simulation day. I didn’t really get to see the factory, so I’m hoping to tour it this time”, he added.

Herta seeks a starting seat in F1

Colton confirmed that Zak Brown’s men are very secretive, so his first step will be to observe all the details of the venue and then carry out more tests as the year goes on: “It’s going to be fantastic and I’m really looking forward to it”, acknowledged the Andretti pilot.

While waiting for the decision made by McLaren regarding its future, Herta would be willing to negotiate any offer that comes up on the table: “I don’t have a contract or a seat with anyone, so anything can happen. If the McLaren thing leads nowhere, I hope people at least talk about it. It will be very important because, hopefully, I will open some doors”, concluded one of the stars of IndyCar who, unfortunately, has not had a desired championship start in 2022.
