NTT IndyCar Series Felix Rosenqvist in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda has had an impressive first season with Chip Ganassi Racing having come extremely close to taking his maiden race win at Mid Ohio in July.
The Swede picked up his first podium finish in that race when he finished second to his team mate Scott Dixon.
Speaking about the Rookie of the Year championship he said:
Normally we would care more about the real championship, but we’re not fighting for (that) so the Rookie of the Year is definitely a fun bonus championship. “There have been a lot of good drivers — Santino and Marcus (Ericsson) and Colton – every one of them has been quick, so it’s going to be hard (to win the crown), but I think we took a good leap (at Portland).”
