Colton Herta: Red Bull working to secure licence for IndyCar star at Alpha Tauri next season

Red Bull are trying to secure a Formula 1 licence for IndyCar star Colton Herta so he can drive for their Alpha Tauri team next year. Herta does not have the required number of points under the FIA’s system to qualify for an F1 ‘super-licence’. An FIA spokesperson said: “We are going to stick to our rules. Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said they would not release Gasly to Alpine unless they could secure Herta. Herta tested for McLaren in July this year and their team principal Andreas Seidl said he was more than good enough for a seat in F1. A number of team bosses said at the Dutch Grand Prix that no exemptions should be made from the licencing system.
