Rosenqvist's fifth place finish in Sunday's Grand Prix of Monterey at Laguna Seca seal the deal for 2019 NTT IndyCar Series Rookie of the Year honors and solidifies Felix Rosenqvist as one of the World’s Fastest Racers.
The Chip Ganassi Racing driver from Sweden celebrated with team owner Chip Ganassi, mentor Dario Franchitti and members of his team pit crew.
“It was a hell of a year,” Rosenqvist told reporters following the race. “My Chip Ganassi NTT DATA crew has just been flawless all season, especially the pit crew.
The Grand Prix of Monterey started out tough for Rosenqvist as problems during qualifying started him pretty far down the grid, but he fought from 14th to an impressive fifth place.
“You know, this weekend was our time to sort of end the season on a high, and starting 14th is not normally the way to do that,” Rosenqvist said. “I tried to use that little bit of anger to go forward today.”
