Not Just a Stroll: Drivers Learn Fine Details during Walks

Before the 27 NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers hit the 1.8-mile St. Petersburg, Florida street circuit for practice Friday afternoon, they embraced the opportunity to take part in the track walk Thursday afternoon. “You can always pick up something,” said the newest Andretti Global driver, Marcus Ericsson, who won this race last year. This was the area in last year’s race where Scott McLaughlin and Romain Grosjean entered side-by-side with 29 laps to go in pursuit of the lead on track. “In general, it’s (the track) very similar to last year, and last year, I found my way around here pretty well,” he said. He said the walks are a great way to kick-start the weekend with the team. Ericsson’s new team, Andretti Global, has produced fast cars here the last couple of seasons.
