Ericsson and O’Ward win dramatic Detroit double‑header

The 2021 IndyCar season will be one US open-wheel fans remember for years. That much looks certain after rounds seven and eight played out on Detroit’s Belle Isle circuit on Saturday and Sunday with endless incident and action making the series’ return to street track racing unmissable motor sport. The winners were ex-Formula 1 racer Marcus Ericsson, who benefitted from a rival’s misfortune to break his IndyCar duck on Saturday, then Arrow McLaren SP’s fast-rising star Pato O’Ward put in a stunning performance on Sunday to win race two in the most emphatic manner.
