Ericsson in no hurry for F1 race return
Ericsson then returned to the wheel of the car for the post-Austrian GP test.
But the 28-year-old now races in the Indycar series, and says he intends to stay in America in 2020.
"For the moment, I see myself continuing in the US," he told France's Auto Hebdo.
"I'm having a good time and I'm starting to understand the intricacies of driving in Indycar," Ericsson added.
"I would love to stay and see what I can do with more experience. So I'm looking to sign a contract there for 2020. After that, I never close the door."
Ericsson said recently that the performance of an Indycar cannot compete with F1, but from a racing perspective, he says American open wheelers are better.
"At every race, I know I have the chance to fight at the front," he now tells Auto Hebdo.
"It's difficult of course because there are plenty of good drivers, but at least I never have the feeling that there is no chance.
"When I was in F1, I don't believe I had the same feeling more than once," Ericsson said.
