Peder: Thanks Marcus! I’m so tired of defending you! Chronicles

“I hope that Swedes interested in motorsport now join forces and cheer him on for more victories instead of trying to explain to everyone who can listen that he is not really good.”

Marcus Eriksson is a winner again.

This is a chronicle. This means that the content is the writer’s own opinion.

When I write the here it is exactly one week since Marcus Eriksson took his first victory in Indycar. His first victory at all in just over eight years! Congratulations Mackan! So sick nice in ten thousand different ways. Sure nice for him too but above all for me, because I’m so tired of defending him.

Marcus is a fantastic driver, he has always been, even during the eight years he has not won anything, but for some reason there has always been a great high-minded driver who has wanted to be clear that Marcus is at least not good at all, he at least does not fit at all in F1, there are many other Swedes who are much better, it is the money that governs blah blah blah. He that other is at least much better and so on.

I’m so terribly tired of you who is doing so. Can you just sit down and be quiet now. I wanted to write that you would shut up, but I know that our good choral reader in the newspaper usually removes such things when I write it.

But let’s go through this a bit for those who are interested. I have written about Marcus before and would love to do it again. I like him. He is very nice and very good at what he does. In the teams he has worked for, he is always very popular for his openness and because he includes everyone. He is as far from a diva as you can get.

Most people who have had opinions about him are talking about the millions who back him, without them he would certainly not have received any F1 control, not even Indycar for that matter. You know what, it’s 95 percent of the starting field. Guaranteed.

Three of this year’s drivers are sons of billionaires, do you even know which ones? Wow, what if someone’s cheering you on? Two of the drivers are sons of former F1 drivers, could that affect their opportunities? No, only when it comes to Marcus is that important. There is talk about which drivers get paid by their team and which get paid by sponsors.

News flash, all paid for by sponsors. The drivers who receive a salary usually receive it based on sponsors that they themselves bring to the team. That they get their salary from the team itself instead of directly from the sponsor is just a technicality. EVERYONE has their own sponsors in the teams. So put it down!

What do you think would differentiate between all drivers if they were sitting in the same car over a lap? Do you think there would be big differences? I do not think so, I think they would be microscopic. Everyone, and I mean everyone who drives F1 is a great driver, it’s that simple.

Do you remember when Mackan drove towards Leclerc? Leclerc who is considered one of the absolute best drivers in the starting field. He always got beaten up in the qualifiers but drove better than him in the race? Anything weird there? Could it be that the biggest power factor in F1, which is Ferrari, did not want to see his future golden boy beaten by an untouched Swede? How many people think they drove with the exact same material during the qualifiers, hand up? I absolutely do not think so.

It is not possible to succeed if you do not have the right conditions, I think without a doubt that Mackan did everything he could with the material he had available in Formula 1.

Over to Indycar. Check out the team Mackan runs for. Do you think everyone there has the same conditions? Is it a coincidence or maybe even Mackan’s fault that he enters the depot as fifth and comes out as eight every other time while Dixon enters as fifth and comes out as third?

Could it be that the team puts the best staff in their high-profile drivers and lets Mackan take what is left over? These are just my own thoughts. Still, he has been up and sniffing at so many good placements, and yet he managed to win last week! Do you understand where I want to go?

That man has had so many poles out during his career that he was more than worthy of this victory, and many, many more. I’m so happy for him.

I hope that Swedes are interested in motorsports now joins forces behind and cheers him on to more victories instead of trying to explain to everyone who can listen that he is not really good. Because you know what? He is good. He has proven it many times. Anyone who grasps something has seen it a long time ago. So stop fussing now. Because I’m not going to defend him anymore. I’m just going to cheer. Thanks Marcus!
