The Formula 1 public opinion is also divided on the subject, but it seems that it really only depends on the permission of the International Automobile Federation for a driver to be a member of the field in 2023 who has not even obtained the “F1 license ”, i.e. the super license. Colton Herta, who competes in IndyCar, could sit at AlphaTauri next year in place of Pierre Gasly, who could take the vacant seat at Alpine.

Helmut Marko, head of motorsport at Red Bull, does not hide all this. “We have reached an agreement including all teams and parties,” declared the Austrian specialist after the Dutch Grand Prix. “First, we need a definite answer, and Monza can have everything,” he pointed to the role of the FIA.

Marko emphasized that by all teams and parties he meant Alpine and Gasly, not just Herta’s side. “We looked at the rules and also talked to the FIA. There is nothing unreasonable about this. He won seven IndyCar races, I think they can be compared to Formula 1 races. It would be a shame if he didn’t get a super license,” he added.

Alpine and the FIA ​​did not comment on the matter, although according to reports, the French are preparing alternative plans if Gasly is not released by Red Bull because Herta did not receive a special permit.
