Marcus Ericsson, the driver of the No.8 Huski Iced Spritz Honda, has confirmed that he is talking to Chip Ganassi Racing about remaining with the team beyond the end of the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season but that there is nothing to announce yet.
The Swede who won the Indianapolis 500 in 2022 with Ganassi has made no secret that he feels that he deserves to be in a position where he does not have to bring sponsorship to the team, given that he is an Indianapolis 500 winner.
Paddock Eye understands that while Ericsson is currently with Chip Ganassi Racing, there is the potential for him to move elsewhere for 2024, most noticeably to Andretti Autosport, who it is understood is on the lookout for at least one, if not two drivers next season.
It has also emerged that championship leader Alex Palou in the No.10 The American Legion Honda has confirmed that he will not announce where he is going next season until the season-ending race, the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca next month.
It is expected that Alex Palou will move to Arrow McLaren in 2024, regardless of whether or not he wins the championship. As it stands, the only driver who is contracted at Chip Ganassi Racing is Scott Dixon.
