Nyck de Vries hoped for a switch to Formula 1, but in the end that did not happen. Alfa Romeo Racing and Williams opted for other drivers, leaving the Dutchman with another seat in Formula E with the Mercedes team. Or will De Vries be admired as a driver in the IndyCar from 2022, together with Veekay?

Last week it was announced that De Vries will test for Meyer Shank Racing in the IndyCar at the Sebring circuit. In conversation with the Algemeen Dagblad. The driver from Sneek let know that he is happy with the opportunity.

De Vries curious about experience

"Of course I want to do that. You hear so many different stories about it, so I want to experience it for myself. How that car feels. How the culture is there, the whole setting around it. I am very curious about it", he says. Whether a move to the United States is a serious option? "I want to experience what that world is like first. How I'm going to find it."

De Vries became Formula E world champion with Mercedes in 2021, but the German formation is stepping out of the electric class after next season. After next year, De Vries will have to look for a new challenge anyway, but it is also possible that he will leave his current employer early.
