Herbert looking forward to American challenge
JAGUAR'S Johnny Herbert has said that, despite his reluctance to leave Formula One, he is looking forward to a new and more relaxed challenge in the American-based Champ Car series next year.
Herbert announced last month that he would be quitting Formula One for the CART series in America at the end of this season and, although he has yet to secure a drive, believes he can expect a more laid-back atmosphere in the twilight of his career.
"The pit-lane politics in F1 is something that I won't miss," said Herbert. "The sport is very, very big in business, and very competitive.
"Everything has changed over the last 10 years. That's what will be refreshing when I get out to America next year - and it is something I'm really looking forward to."
