Biography

 

Marcus Ericsson Biography

Caterham CT05

It was a surprise when Sauber announced that they had signed Marcus Ericsson for the 2015 season, after an underwhelming debut year.

The Swede had a rough deal at Caterham but he struggled to make an impression despite their widely publicised problems.

He now joins another team in financial difficulties in Sauber, and there is little doubt that Ericsson’s financial backers influenced the team’s decision.

The 24-year-old will be the team’s senior driver alongside Felipe Nasr, so he will have to impress and show speed many believe is above him if he is to remain in the sport for much longer than 2015.

Prior to F1, Ericsson had a steady but unspectacular racing, and he hasn't won a championship since the 2009 Japanese Formula Three title.

In several seasons of GP2, he consistently improved each year and he progressed from back-marker to podium achiever in five years.

Ericsson has had experience in F1 before. He competed in the Young Drivers Test in 2009 and received positive feedback from Ross Brawn, who said that he showed exceptional maturity.

Ericsson was signed to be Kamui Kobayashi’s team-mate at Caterham in 2014, but the car was riddled with problems and was often described as difficult to drive.

Kobayashi, a more experienced driver, dominated the Swede over the course of the season, but it was Ericsson’s performance in relation to Andre Lotterer that surprised many and dented his reputation.

Lotterer was drafted in for Kobayashi in Belgium to help raise funds, and he drover quicker than Ericsson all weekend.

The 2014 season ended badly for the Swede after Caterham’s financial problems worsened and they entered administration with three races to go. Sauber have given him an F1 lifeline, and he has to take it.
