IndyCar aces Colton Herta, Pato O’Ward and Alex Palou all have links to Formula 1 through McLaren, but what are the chances of any of them making the switch and how challenging would it be to do so?

In the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast, we answer that question with the help of IndyCar racer – and The Race IndyCar Podcast co-host – JR Hildebrand.

Hildebrand, a former Force India F1 test driver, joins Scott Mitchell and Edd Straw to explain the differences in the driving challenge and why a move to grand prix racing will always hold an appeal for IndyCar drivers.

They also explain the testing opportunities these drivers are getting and which of the drivers is best-placed to make the switch to F1.
