Andretti Global’s Colton Herta, driver of the No.26 Gainbridge Honda says that Marcus Ericsson is a very calm and collected individual. Speaking to Paddock Eye on INDYCAR content day, Herta said:

He’s very calm and very collected. His feedback seems to be very good. I’ve only been with him at maybe two days of testing, and that was with the hybrid, and we were both on separate days. But he’s been quick in the car, and obviously a 500 winner. He’s done well there in the past.

What he’ll bring also is a good insight into the differences in the Ganassi and Andretti car at some places and what he’s feeling and what the differences between those two and how to bridge that gap, if there’s a place that he thinks Andretti can do better.

Andretti Global has scaled back its involvement in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES for the 2024 season going from four to three full-time entries and has brought in 2022 Indianapolis 500 winner Marcus Ericsson to the team alongside Colton Herta and Kyle Kirkwood.

Speaking during his time with the media on Thursday, Ericsson not only confirmed Olivier Boisson as his race engineer for this season but he also confirmed that Huski Chocolate has not moved across to Andretti Global with the Swede.
