Marcus Ericsson will be a Sauber development pilot as we met after the announcement of Giovinazzi and Räikkönen, and now also an SPM Indy pilot in 2019

Marcus Ericsson makes the jump to the Indy 2019 with the SPM team

Marcus Ericsson

Following the announcement of Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi as official Sauber pilots 2019, it was learned that the young Swedish driver Marcus Ericsson was giving no official seat for the next F1 season. In addition, in the official statement that was made, it was learned that Ericsson would be the development pilot or third driver of the Swiss team. Marcus was transformed into one of those who will no longer have a steering wheel in F1 2019, as it seems that it will also happen with Esteban Ocon and we will see if with Hartley also ...

However, the pilot from Sweden handled several alternatives to the next season after knowing its destiny, one of those alternatives happened to run in another category outside the F1, as it could be the American Indy. And so it has been confirmed today, the SPM team of the Indy will be the new team of Marcus Ericsson. After 5 seasons in F1 , it will be the driver of the car number 7 , along with his teammate James Hinchcliffe. Good news so that Marcus can continue active in motorsport.

Car SPM of the Indy

SPM stands for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, the Ericsson destination team at the IndyCar 2019 . This is how he joins the team that last year ran Hinchcliffe, Robert Wickens, and Carlos Muñoz, getting some victories during the last years and 26 podiums. The number 6 has been reserved for a possible return of Robert Wickens, the protagonist of that tromendo accident that has left him paraplegic in the Pocono circuit as you know. From AM I wish the best and fastest recovery to Wickens, of which we have seen promising videos, and also a good season in Swedish.

Possibly the destinations of Marcus Ericsson cross with the Spanish Fernando Alonso in 2019, if finally Alonso decides to run the 500 miles of Indianapolis. We will see if we finally know more news about the future of Alonso that we will tell you. Everything is still very open, but I hope to tell you good news soon.
