Quite a lot has been going on:
2019 IndyCar Rookie Preview: Felix Rosenqvist – Open Felix Rosenqvist boasts arguably the most diverse racing background of the first-year drivers. Hailing from V’rnamo, Sweden, the 27-year-old has driven on some of the world’s most famous tracks.
As he prepares for his first season in the NTT IndyCar Series, he will look to use that experience to his advantage.
Like many current drivers, Rosenqvist’s career begins on the karting circuit. In 2007, he heads to Asia and begins his single-seater career in the Asian Formula Renault Challenge.
Rosenqvist earns his first victory at the season finale in Shanghai. The win propels him to fourth in points, highest of any series rookie.
