Sweden’s Marcus Ericsson has settled into his new surroundings at Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports ahead of his NTT IndyCar Series debut with the team in just over a month at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg.
In a hilarious video posted on the team’s social channels on Monday showed just how much Ericsson has settled into his surroundings with the team.
The video shows Ericsson’s team mate James Hinchcliffe asking the Swede to help him assemble some Ikea tables and an IndyCar and as the video shows, the results are brilliant:

The team have been very impressed with Ericsson’s initial feedback when it comes to setting up the car and team general manager Taylor Kiel says he is impressed with how similar Hinch and Ericsson’s driving styles are and this will prove to be extremely beneficial to the team in 2019.
