Struggling Herbert To Quit F1

Jaguar driver Johnny Herbert has revealed that he plans to quit Formula One at the end of the season and move into American CART racing.

He has struggled since the Stewart-Ford team was bought by Jaguar as the car has been unreliable.

So far this year he has failed to win a point, despite winning the European Grand Prix last year.

His most prolific season was in 1995 when he was number two to Michael Schumacher at Benetton and won both the British and Italian grand prix.

Herbert told a press conference that he will leave the Formula One paddock to have a go at the Fed-Ex CART championship in the United States.

He said:

"Obviously I've got to sign a contract for a drive, but that's what I want to do next year.

"We will know what is going on probably within the next month."
