The latest name to arrive through the revolving door at the bottom of the field is Swedish driver Marcus Ericsson, who will race for Caterham. The 23 year-old finished 8th in the GP2 series last season, picking up two podiums and has been on the fringes of F1 for a number of seasons.
The rookie has had a steady but unspectacular racing career to date and hasn’t won a championship since the 2009 Japanese Formula Three title. Several seasons in GP2 have shown a consistent improvement each season and he has progressed from back marker to podium achiever in five years.
Marcus Ericsson has had experience in F1 before. He competed in the Young Drivers Test in 2009 for Brawn and received positive feedback from Team Principle Ross Brawn, saying he showed exceptional maturity. Although, it is unlikely that he will set the world on fire having taken just three wins in his past 96 races.
However, his consistent and steady style should serve him well in the Caterham as reliability and tyre wear will all play a significant part in the new F1 season and Ericsson and his new team will be hoping to capitalize on any mistakes the top teams may make.
