Marcus Ericsson, the winner of the 2022 Indy 500 and a consistent performer with Ganassi in the past two seasons, has yet to make a deal for the next year, although he has received interest from other teams.

Ericsson has said that he wants to be treated as a top driver, which is what he believes he is in the series. He feels that he deserves better treatment and better terms from Ganassi. Ericsson has scored four wins with Ganassi so far and is in his fourth season with them. He has been building his performance every year and has been getting stronger with the #8 team.

He said that he needs to focus on delivering on the track, which is what he has been doing this season. He has been leading the points until the last race and is in good shape for the 500 again this year.
