In Britain, our royalty often get attention for the wrong reasons. In Sweden, their royalty go racing 💪 Prince Carl Philip is signed up for a full season of the Carrera Cup Scandinavia. Love that FE car-inspired livery 😍
Land in Sweden and 10 minutes later randomly bump into @Ericsson_Marcus. Is our country really that small? 😆
We’re proud to announce our partnership with the legendary @CGRTeams. Flying the Huski colours will be our fellow Swede @Ericsson_Marcus in car no.8, taking Huski Chocolate to the limit on the tracks of the NTT Indycar Series 2020.
Huski Chocolate, a Swedish hot chocolate brand run by @stantonbarrett, will be the primary sponsor for Swedish driver @Ericsson_Marcus in the No. 8 at @CGRTeams.
2020 just got a little Swede-er... And sweeter. ☕️😋
Join us in welcoming @HuskiChocolate to @Ericsson_Marcus' No. 8 this season! 🇸🇪
#HuskiChocol8 | #INDYCAR
Extremely happy and proud to be driving the no. 8 @HuskiChocolate @CGRTeams Honda in the 2020 @IndyCar series. Love the design of the car, can’t wait to see and drive it in real life! And hey who doesn’t love chocolate 🍫 😋 #HuskiChocol8 #ME8 #INDYCAR
Great day at the Autosport International Show here in Birmingham 🇬🇧 Seeing so many racing cars makes me even more excited for pre season testing 🏎
What a year 2019 has been !
Really looking forward to 2020 to be back in the car, to push the limits even further and to learn from the mistakes done in 2019 to have a better 2020. 🎉
Extremely happy to announce that I will be staying with @scuderiaferrari for 5 more years. I'm so grateful to be driving for such a team. I've learnt so much during this first year with the team and it is a great starting point to build a strong relationship for the years ahead.
@EricssonHampus made it a double win for Swedes at @SnettertonMSV with his victory in race three of the weekend, while a lap one pile-up affected the title battle!
The last 3 Wilson Children's Fund charity posters are ready for purchase; all proceeds go to Justin's daughters. Here's No. 8 from @IndyCar @WeatherTechRcwy signed by the 4 star rookies @FRosenqvist, @ColtonHerta, @SantinoFerrucci, & @Ericsson_Marcus.
Une invitation de @Charles_Leclerc, ça ne se refuse pas non ?!
#Noëlavantlheure #Ferrari #F1
Super cool de changer de casques avec toi mon pote ⛑😜 / It was pretty cool to swap helmets with a great driver and friend like @charles_leclerc ! ⛑😜
Podium to finish this 1st season with the team. Thanks to all of you for the support and for making this season so special. ❤️
2 Wins, 10 Podiums and 7 poles.
Tune into @F1 here on Twitter after the podium ceremony for a live Twitter talking down the last race of the @F1 season with me @JaitkenRacer and @wbuxtonofficial #F1 #AbuDhabiGP
Last qualifying session ✅
7 Pole Positions ✅
Most poles out of anyone in 2019 ✅
No points awarded for the poles but I never would have thought I would have 7 poles in my first season with @scuderiaferrari.
Now let's finish 2019 in style tomorrow, let's goooo 🏆
Charlie Whiting memorial bike race tonight with @alfaromeoracing . We finished P15 out of 43 teams, good job everyone! Nice to see so many teams show up in honour of our missed friend Charlie #F1 #AbuDhabiGP
Marcus Ericsson spent five years in #F1 before switching to IndyCar - and now he has a "once-in-a-lifetime" 2020 opportunity. An in-depth interview with the new Ganassi driver:
Been on a plane all day so missed the @F1 race. Seems to have been a crazy one!! Big congratulations to @alfaromeoracing great result, well deserved after all the hard work this year! And also congrats to @PierreGASLY and @Carlossainz55 on their first @F1 podiums 👏🏻 #F1Brazil
Whatever happened, happened. I won't comment the crash, but very happy for you my friend. You deserve all of this, the 1st podium is always special and we both dreamt of that moment since racing in karting together, you're the best, enjoy today @PierreGASLY
Disapointed with myself today. I did a mistake in my 1st lap of Q3 which could have been very close to pole. The team deserved better and I didn't do the job, anyway, not much of a difference as we'll have the 10 places grid penalty for tomorrow.
I'm extremely happy to announce that I'll now have my own karting brand.
I started racing 18 years ago dreaming of Formula 1, most of the best times I've had in motorsport are from the karting days but it's also where I've learnt most. Can't wait to see this beauty on track 👊
Big news today re @IMS @IndyCar . I want to thank the Hulman-George family for everything they’ve done over the years, creating something unique that’s loved by so many. For the future of the sport I couldn’t think of anyone better then Roger Penske and his organisation to lead.
Älskar årets @orebrohockey . Visar att det inte är namnet på tröjan som spelar roll. Med rätt inställning, hårt jobb och bra tränare kommer man långt. Väldigt inspirerande att se. Keep it up! #HejaÖrebro @SHLse
For the record HAM, VER (x2), LEC, ALB, GAS, STR, NOR (x2), MAG and KVY all had lap times deleted in FP1 for track limits offences at Turn 19, detected automatically by the timing loop. Not a big deal today but could be significant come qualifying
I don’t like turn 19 at @COTA .Not a fan of the delete your lap system since it happens so often/easily. And the @IndyCar system used this year with no track limits is not good either. If I could choose I would put a gravel trap=not a problem anymore, and a more tricky/fun corner
