Formula 1: Christian Horner calls on FIA to look into Super Licence stance

Reading now: 596

Christian Horner has expressed his hopes that the FIA will review their Super Licence points structure to allow drivers like Colton Herta an easier route to Formula 1. Red Bull’s sister team AlphaTauri were linked considerably with a move for the American driver earlier this month but that potential switch from IndyCar to F1 for Herta now looks to be off of the table, at least for now.

Indeed, he only has 32 points out of the required 40 you need to attain the FIA Super Licence required to drive and compete in the Formula 1 world championship and it’s been ruled that he could not join the series for 2023 as things stand.

It would be great to give arguably the best current American driver an opportunity in Formula 1. “We’ll have to respect the FIA’s stance, at the end of the day that’s down to the FIA to look at.

I know that they’re doing that but we’ll accept whichever decision they come up with. But it’s something that needs looking at because it shouldn’t be so hard for drivers to transition from America’s premier series into Formula 1.” READ MORE: HOW MAX VERSTAPPEN CAN WIN THE WORLD TITLE IN SINGAPORE It appeared quite clear that AlphaTauri wanted to bring in Herta for 2023 but that is now not going to be happening by the looks of things.
