Summer day 19 – Marcus Ericsson

Marcus Ericsson – 9
Marcus Ericsson and his teammate Sam Bird have had an interesting season. The lowest point came at the Monaco Grand Prix, when Sam was starting on pole. After he stalled, the two drivers ended up competing with each other, and took each other out in the feature race. They had another altercation in the sprint, causing Marcus to retire.
Well, whatever iSport did it got them friendly again, and they have both been challenging well for championship points so that iSport are currently third in the championship. Swede Marcus has picked up two podiums this season and also had a fourth place and three fifth places. At Istanbul he was the guy who missed out on the points in both races (9th in the feature, 8th in the sprint) and he had a good sprint in Valencia to come back to 11th after retiring in the feature to start 24th for the next race. Qualifying-wise he is getting better, having had a few bad ones but not out of the top ten for the last three rounds. In fact, he started third at the Hungaroring – his best of the year.

Points: 25

Worst qualifying: 20
Best finish: 3 (Barcelona sprint, Silverstone feature)
