F2 driver Christian Lundgaard will race full time in the NTT IndyCar Series next season, joining Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing full time in a multiyear deal announced Wednesday.

Lundgaard made his IndyCar debut with RLL in the Aug. 14 race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, qualifying an impressive fourth and finishing 12th. He is a member of the Alpine Academy, a youth driver program tied to the F1 team previously known as Renault.

He becomes the latest European transplant to race full time in IndyCar next season, joining F1 veteran Romain Grosjean (who excelled in a partial schedule last year) and Callum Ilott.

Lundgaard, 20, will be teamed with Graham Rahal and Jack Harvey, who recently was announced as the No. 45 Dallara-Honda driver. The Danish driver is ranked 11th in the F2 standings this season with the Alpine F1 team.
