Herta, a seven-time winner in IndyCar, signed with McLaren in March to become a development driver for the team,

With an opportunity to test their 2021 challenger, the MCL35M, included as part of the deal.

Herta’s fellow IndyCar driver Pato O’Ward, currently racing with Arrow McLaren SP,

Undertook his test in McLaren F1 machinery when he drove the MCL35M at the end-of-season Young Drivers’ Test in Abu Dhabi.

Both drivers potentially pose a threat to one half of McLaren’s current F1 line-up, Daniel Ricciardo,

McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown recently though confirmed Ricciardo’s seat is safe for the 2023 season.
