...and Herbert agrees a deal with Forsythe/Zakspeed
Herbert is understood to have landed the drive despite competition from German Jorg Muller, who has been trying to break into single-seaters having test driven for BMW and Michelin in recent years. In addition to his testing work in 2000 Muller drove for the BMW Motorsport team in the American Le Mans Series.
We hear, incidentally, that Herbert's pal and former double CART Champion Alex Zanardi will be back in CART next year, driving a second car for the Mo Nunn Racing organization.
