The Swedish F1 driver Marcus Ericsson who is currently driving for Alfa Romeo-Sauber will be competing in IndyCar for the 2019 season. Next to his job as test driver for the Sauber team, he will be driving for the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports team en will become teammate for James Hinchcliffe.

After the assignment of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi there was no open spot for Ericsson. He said: "It is a great honor for me to be competing in IndyCar for Schmidt Peterson Motorsport team. It feels like the right step for me at this point of my career. I can't wait to start with SPM of whom I've heard a lot of positive things. The team have had some great successes the last years and I can't wait to help them and be part of such a great team.

There is a lot for me to learn, for example racing on ovals. It will not be easy, but it is definitely a challenge I'm looking forward to."
