In his first test in an Indy car and first visit to Sebring, he wrapped his arms around a car that’s tougher to drive than what he’s used to and a track like he hasn’t seen since he was a kid.
“You’re racing on a World War II-era airport,’” said Taylor Kiel, Ericsson’s new boss at Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.”
“It’s a good place to test, for sure.”
That difficulty spoke to Ericsson in the first step of his transition from F1 to INDYCAR.
