Herta dream over as de Vries meets with Marko

Colton Herta’s Formula 1 dream is over for now after Red Bull gave up its push to secure a mandatory super license for the American star of Indycar racing. On the face of it, it’s also bad news for Pierre Gasly – as Red Bull only intended to release the Frenchman from his 2023 duties at Alpha Tauri if Herta got the green light. He admits “negotiations with Alpine are difficult”, but in light of the Herta news Marko also said Red Bull is still exploring “what possibilities there could be” for next year. “We talked about schnitzel,” de Vries, 27, joked to France’s Auto Hebdo when asked about his meeting with Marko. De Vries is also still a contender to race full-time for Williams in 2023, and he is currently preparing to test a year-old Alpine in Hungary. “So there are opportunities but no guarantees,” de Vries added.
