NASCAR: Kyle Larson has eyes on a F1 test
NASCAR driver Kyle Larson says he wants to propose a “wager” to McLaren boss Zak Brown in order to get him a test in the Formula 1 car.
30-year-old Larson recently signed with the Arrow McLaren IndyCar team to race in the 2024 Indy 500.
But Larson hopes to go one step better. He would like to try his hand at the premier form of motorsports – Formula 1.
“No, not yet,” he told the Race’s IndyCar podcast when asked if he talked to Brown about F1. “As of right now, I’m just hoping to get passes to the Vegas f1 race! That’s kind of all I care about.
“I would love to [test an F1 car] I just haven’t mentioned anything to him yet. But yeah, maybe that’s something I have to wager, I guess, to him, but that would be so cool if I could get the chance to just test an F1 car.
“But honestly, if I could race in Formula 1 someday that would be unbelievable. It’s probably not realistic, but heck, who knows? I mean, I would love to and that would be a cool opportunity.”
