Marcus Ericsson in the No.8 Huski Chocolate Chip Ganassi Racing Honda says that it was tough as he ended the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge in second.

Leading the race on the restart with one lap to go, Ericsson said that it was not a fair way for the race to have been ended.

The finish was the fourth closest finish on Indianapolis 500 history.

Speaking to Paddock Eye following the race he said that he is emotional and that while it hurts he is extremely proud of his team and they worked extremely well during May.

I feel disappointed because I think we did everything right. Like I said, I think when that red came so late, I thought I was a bit too late, so I thought when the yellow came out with three laps to go, whatever, in my world we don’t restart that race.

But no, it is what it is. You have to play with the cards you’re given, and I think we nailed it today. We did everything right. I did everything right.

You can’t do more than that. Again, I think Josef is a worthy champion, and I congratulate him on that.

But I just think it’s a bit tough to sort of accept how it ended. That’s my feeling after. But I’m very proud of our efforts and our performance today.
