Felix Rosenqvist will pilot the No. 10 NTT DATA Honda in the 2019 INDYCAR Season for Chip Ganassi Racing. The organization announced on Friday, Sept. 28 that Rosenqvist will replace Ed Jones, who piloted the entry in 2018. NTT DATA, which was the primary sponsor in 14 of the 17 races on the No. 10 in 2018, will return to the organization in 2019 as part of a multi-year deal.
“To say I’m thrilled or excited to be making this step in my career would be an understatement,” said Rosenqvist. “Coming to INDYCAR and driving for Chip is just a dream come true. I’ve followed the team for as long as I can remember, and it’s the kind of team and owner any driver would want to race for. Scott has had another tremendous season with three wins and a fifth title, so you absolutely couldn’t ask for anything more in a teammate. I can’t wait to start contributing to the team and getting to spend more time with everyone at NTT DATA.”
Rosenqvist has a heavy background in FIA Formula E. In 24 starts he has three victories, seven podium finishes and six career poles. In those two seasons, he has the best points finish third in 2016. Along with his starts in Formula E, Rosenqvist also has two starts in the Weathertech SportsCar Championship both coming at the Daytona International Speedway in the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona.
He has 10 starts in the Indy Lights under his belt coming in 2016 with Belardi Auto Racing. He secured three poles which translated into his three career victories.
