Andretti Global’s Marcus Ericsson, in the No.28 Delaware Life Honda, says that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is always tricky on the road course. The team spent Friday at Brickyard working on their setups for the Sonsio Grand Prix of Indianapolis in May.

Speaking to Paddock Eye on Friday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Swede said:

This place is always tricky on the road course; it seems like it always gets extremely tight, and it was the same this morning, we tried three different setups on the Andretti cars, and we all ended up within a couple of hundred of each other, and we thought, how is this possible? It is a bit weird in this place sometimes, but I am still learning the Andretti car in general and working with my guys on the 28 car. For me, it is more important to do that than scanning through some different setup options so that I know how they felt in the Ganassi car. Still, because the Andretti car is a bit different, they might do things a bit differently than what I expected, and we ticked some more boxes in Thermal that we needed to do, so I think a day like today is super useful to us.

I still haven’t cracked the code on the Indy road course, but I always enjoy getting some extra time on track here.

Marcus Ericsson will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from April 10-11 for the Indianapolis 500 open test. He will be joined by his teammates Colton Herta, Kyle Kirkwood, and Marco Andretti, who returns to the team for the Greatest Spectacle In Racing, which takes place on Sunday, May 26.
