As Rosenqvist's accelerator got stuck, he shot straight on and experienced a huge impact. The team of Arrow McLaren announced on Twitter that Rosenqvist has not been cleared to race at Road America this weekend. Magnussen, who drove for Haas F1 last year, will replace him, making his official IndyCar debut. Further updates on Rosenqvist's condition will be announced later.
Magnussen and McLaren
Magnussen is a familiar face at McLaren. In fact, in 2014, the driver drove for the team in F1 and even achieved a second place at the Australian Grand Prix.
