Another new track and experience this weekend @hondaindy Toronto. Difficult but fun track. Unfortunately got hit at the start of the race which put me 4 laps down. When I got going again I had great speed all day and posted the fastest lap of the race! Frustrating to not get a result out of it, but bringing the positives #ME7 #INDYCAR @ Toronto, Ontario ...

We were so impressed with your perseverance Marcus!! My son was timing your laps for the last 1/4 of the race, tracking your improvements!! Thanks for a great effort, it didn’t go unnoticed!!

Thank you for taking your time, even after the disapointing race that you had, it was great that you put a smile on your face when we took a photo of you and my kids. You are a true sportsman and a very big role model for kids that dream of a racing career. Keep up the spirit and good luck for the next race..

You put up a good fight! Keep pushing!

Bring on Iowa! You had a great race other than someone else’s mistake. I think great things are ahead. Enjoy the week, podium time this weekend 🇸🇪🏆🏎

Another new and happy experience Marcus, congrats

Fantastiskt bra att komma tillbaks efter smällen och med racet bästa pace grymt tider i klass med toppen snyggt🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🥇

Really sad a bout the hit! Strong work to keep up the spirit and do some nice laps even if the race was over and done. Hope you will get some nice races now and I do hope to see you competing on a high level moving forward to next year. Go get them 🏎

Bad luck. But the photos are great.

Carry Marcus! Lots of more Finnish Sisu! 💪🤡💝

Grymt kört ändå! #ME7 😎

Du var snabbast på banan💪🏼kingen. Visa dom alla att du är bäst 😊

Bra kört ändå trots otur att bli påkörd. Du var snabbast på banan efter... 😀💪👍 🇸🇪

Hoppas verkligen att turen snart vänder för dig, keep fighting 🏎💪

Den som kan ta den största motgången och ändå kämpa hyllas av dom kunniga.Den som ej har erfarenheten av motgång i sin medgång får det svårt .Du har visat enorm styrka o Topp placering och belöningen kommer komma .

Good effort after bad luck at start!

Härligt!

Great photos.

Great to have you back in the car. I hope you will return to the Formula 1 as a main driver.

Great effort from Marcus in testing! Give this man a race seat! Kimi is a legend but surely must move aside at some point soon. I would love to see Ericsson re-added as another fresh young face on the grid, by all appearances a lovely guy who has the right attitude, and a talented, courageous racer who will be deterred by nothing (least of all the scariest shunt of 2018) as he pursues his dreams! Sexy as hell too lmaoooo :P GO ERICSSON! <3 from Australia

Great to see you where you belong!

Underbara bilder, Marcus! C38an har saknat dig! Kul att den fick träffa dig till slut! 😀🤩🇸🇪

My mini helmet 2018

ME7 Indycar is the future! Alfa does not deserve such a professional driver as you! Go Marcus go!!! 🇸🇪😍

Välkommen tillbaka Marcus👍

Bra jobbat Marcus, mycket varv och bra utvärdering, vackert med ditt namn på en F1 bil igen, ge INDYCAR detta åter och kanske nästa med de t du presterat hittils i år så lär telefonen börja ringa från flera F1- stall, hade då fått chansen i bättre matriel utan en massa politiska nackdelar såsom mindre motoreffekt och favoriserande hade du lätt varit topp 6 varje race! Keep up the great work!🤘👍🇸🇪👊👍

Gött 🇸🇪👍🏻

Looks like you had a good day. The Alfa Romeo is a good look for you 🏎

Bra med åk tid👍🏁🇸🇪

Hur kändes årets bil?

Välkommen tillbaka👍🏼

Äntligen känner man igen dig 😎 Men har upptäckt Indycar tack vare dig 👌👌 Gasly ut, Ericsson in 2021??

❤❤❤❤

👍

Detta är bra för dig Marcus. 💪💪👍

Jäkligt snygg hjälm, den där ska du behålla....

Nice seeing you back in an F1 car

Grym och F1 inte lika kul längre😜

Du klär bra i den hjälmen Marcus!! Kul att se dig i F1 igen. Men åg nu tillbaks ti US å visa var skåpet ska stå. (Högst upp på pallen).

Don’t forget, we’re looking forward to seeing you back in an indycar!

FN vad jag är avundsjuk på dig och din arbetsplats! Men härligt å se dig i en F1-bil igen. Men fortsätt kämpa på i Indycar nu, F1 får vänta. 😛👍 #ME7 #ME9

Not our weekend in @roadamerica . Had a difficult first part of the race and after that it was an uphill battle. Still pushed everything I got out on track and did some great overtakes on my way to 13th at the 🏁 #ME7 #INDYCAR ... See moreSee less

Great recovery after the incident anyway! You're doing great! Every track is new for you, so just learn from the incident and move on! You're strong and will do great in Toronto! 💯👏👊😎

Gött kämpat! Cool bana!

Bra kämpat.

Bra kämpat Marcus. Du har kört bra hela tiden tycker jag. Både jag och min son håller på dig. #ME7

I think you did good! Just trouble in the beginning of the race. I know you will be up there soon. Just keep on working and get that qualifying pace working! Keep fighting!

Bra rejsat Marcus!👍

Jag tycker det var strongt att nå 13 platsen med de förutsättningarna. Kanon jobbat!!!

Nya tag Marcus. Bra kämpat som vanligt

Bra kämpat Marcus, från 22 till sista varvet då du knep 13:de. Keep on fighting Marcus, go #ME7🏎🏁

💪🏻🇸🇪💪🏻

💪🏼🇸🇪💪🏼

Marcus Ericsson, you did a great job, you ended a lot higher than you started! Some great racing! Not your fault, you avoided crash on first lap 👍 be happy with your result ! I t could be a lot worse!👍😍🇸🇪🤘😉

Tough unfortunate start, great race pace and fighting spirit back to 13th 💪👊. Keep on pushing🇸🇪🏎🏁🏆🍾 #ME7

Den uppkörningen var lika bra som Felix uppkörning.Jänkarna såg dom jämna bra maxvarvtiderna o rutinen dessa varv krävde.Du har visat redan vem du är där borta .Dom ser allt till skillnad från F1 där det hårda jobbet inte skrivs om.Jo en såg det o tackade dig för den bil du utvecklade o körs idag av andra.Stallchefen Vassaur ville du skulle köra det är jag 99 på men andra Stall styrde Stallet.

Great recovery after getting caught out at t5!

You are doing great Marcus

Keep fighting Marcus! Despite the trouble today you had a great race! We’re behind you no matter what. #ME7

Grym körning trots allt som hände. 👍

You learn more and more. Soon it is your turn to pick the fruit.

Stabil körning, bra jobbat Mackan!!💪😎

Looking at the laptimes you where among the top six ….so if you didn´t had to start over at the back two times you would have been up there.

Du är en riktig racer💨 Kul att se dig satsa till 💯 och dina varvtider hörde till toppskiktet, snart är du där uppe👏🏻💪🏻🇸🇪

Keep fighting Marcus you are doing amazing!!!!

Keep the fight up Marcus!

Ännu en stark insats. Marginalerna är små och du tog många placeringar, ⭐⭐👍👍💪💪🏁🏁
