The FIA ​​refuses to grant Colton Hertha the necessary license to race in Formula 1

The Formula One board said on Friday that IndyCar star Colton Herta will not receive the super license the Americans need to join the F1 grid next season.

“The FIA ​​confirms that an investigation was conducted through the appropriate channels which led to the FIA ​​confirming that driver Colton Herta did not have the required number of points to be awarded the FIA ​​Super Licence,” the FIA ​​said in a statement.

The FIA’s decision was not a surprise.

Red Bull were interested in the 22-year-old from California and are considering giving Herta a seat at AlphaTauri, their junior team. AlphaTauri has already said that Pierre Gasly will return next season and Yuki Tsunoda received a contract extension earlier this week.
