Palou and Herta hope not to compete in Formula 1 anymore

Palou and Herta hope not to compete in Formula 1 anymore

Two IndyCar drivers, Alex Palou and Colton Herta, said they had virtually no chance of making their Formula 1 debut.

Alex Palou, who won his second IndyCar title in three years last year, took part in the first practice for the American Grand Prix in Austin in 2022 with a McLaren. However, his partnership with McLaren ended and the Spanish driver said he was no longer looking for an opportunity to move to Formula 1.

Alex Palou: “I’m tired. Our plan to move to Formula 1 did not work out, but everything is fine. My goal now is to win as many IndyCar titles as possible and win the Indy 500.”

Colton Herta was considered a candidate for AlphaTauri for 2023, but because he did not have the points to qualify for a super license, the team signed Nyck de Vries. Colton admits his only chance of moving to Formula 1 is to sign with Andretti, but the American team has not yet received the green light from championship owner Liberty Media.

Colton Herta: “I’m probably at the age where I can make my debut with a team other than Andretti.

I don’t have details, but I believe Andretti still wants to compete in Formula 1. If this happens, it will be necessary to understand what my age is and what my life priorities are.

“Right now I’m completely focused on IndyCar, but we’ll see how things develop.”
