Driver, Chip Ganassi Racing

At 31, Marcus Ericsson is in his fourth season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, and his third with Chip Ganassi Racing. Ericsson won the ‘Greatest Spectacle in Racing’ in May at the 106th Running of the Indianapolis 500. Ericsson’s victory was the 5th for Chip Ganassi Racing (Franchitti: 2012 & 2010; Dixon: 2008; Montoya: 2000). While Ericsson was the 27th Indianapolis 500 winner with Formula 1 experience, his 97 F1 starts are the 5th-most among that group (Hill: 176; Villeneuve: 163; Fittipaldi: 144; Cheever Jr.: 132; Andretti - 128). With the victory, he also became the 2nd Sweden to ever win the race (Kenny Brack).

Ericsson had a prosperous 2021 season where he claimed his first two series victories (Belle Isle and Nashville). Ericsson also collected 12 top-10 finishes last season, tied with teammates Scott Dixon and Alex Palou for the 2nd-most in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.

In his rookie year of 2019 in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Ericsson scored his first-ever podium with a career-best finish of second in Detroit. He also had six laps led on the season and completed 88.5% of the laps run.

Prior to joining the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Ericsson raced in Formula 1 for five seasons for a total of 97 starts. The Kumla, Sweden, native is a two-time champion (Formula BMW UK, 2007; Japanese Formula Three, 2009), and has twice claimed the Swedish Junior Racer of the Year award (2007, 2009). Prior to that, he competed in British Formula Three, GP2 Asia and GP2.
