about Marcus Ericsson

Marcus Ericsson (born 2 September 1990) is a Swedish race car driver currently racing for Sauber in Formula One, where he is contracted to the end of the 2017 season.

In 2010, he moved up to the GP2 Series where he secured one victory during his maiden campaign for Super Nova Racing. Between 2011 and 2012, Ericsson drove for iSport. Ericsson completed the 2013 GP2 season with DAMS, and debuted in Formula One in 2014 with Caterham F1.
