Hulkenberg to join McLaren for "one-off" IndyCar test

Hulkenberg to join McLaren for "one-off" IndyCar test

Former F1 driver Nico Hulkenberg will drive in a one-off IndyCar test for Arrow McLaren SP next week as he evaluates his options for the future.

Hulkenberg last raced in F1 at last season's Eifel Grand Prix as a replacement for Lance Stroll, who had contracted Covid-19, but after failing to find a seat for this campaign looks resigned to his career in the sport being over.

With various categories an option for the German, a one-day evaluation has been scheduled with Arrow McLaren SP and Chevrolet for Barber Motorsports Park on Monday, October 25.

A statement from Hulkenberg provided by the team read: “I am pleased to try out an IndyCar and see what it’s all about.

"I want to thank Arrow McLaren SP and Chevy for the opportunity at relatively short notice.

"While I don’t have any current plans to race in IndyCar, it will be great to drive a car for the first time and get a feel for the series.”

Team president Taylor Kiel added: “We’re looking forward to welcoming Nico and giving him his first taste of IndyCar in an Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet.

"Barber will be a great track for him to get his first laps and gain some miles in a new form of open-wheel racing.”

If Hulkenberg was to make the switch in the future, he would join Romain Grosjean and Marcus Ericsson in making the move Stateside in recent years.
