IndyCar driver Colton Herta to test for McLaren this week

Herta, 22, will drive a 2021 McLaren at Portimao in Portugal – where grand prix were held in 2020 and 2021 – on 11-13 July. The Australian has struggled to match Norris since joining McLaren in 2021 and there are questions over his future at the team. If he impresses in the test, a switch to F1 with McLaren in 2024 as a replacement for Ricciardo could suit both parties. Despite Ricciardo’s contract with McLaren running for another 18 months, speculation is currently swirling around his future with the team. McLaren is said to be exploring options for 2023 in case Ricciardo decides he does not want to continue in F1.
