Rosenqvist began his car racing career in 2008 Formula Renault 2.0 and 2009 Formula Renault 2.0 Sweden title. When he was starting car racing, he said that he has a bad sense of direction. Eventually, he overcame that struggle and he continued to compete for the German F3 champion, where he placed fifth at the end of the series. He also participated in the 2010 Macau Grand Prix Formula Three, where he finished 9th place.

In 2011, he worked with the Mücke Motorsport team to compete in the F3 Euro Series, and he eventually won the Masters of F3 during his rookie year. In 2012, he competed in the European F3 Championship title and the Macau Grand Prix, which he collided with Raffaele Marciello and it forced him to retire.

Rosenqvist continued to work with Mücke Motorsport until 2014, then he signed with Prema Powerteam for the 2015 European F3 Championship, in which he won 13 victories. He also had his second victory in the 2015 Macau Grand Prix with the same team handling him.

In 2016, he was set to compete in the Indy Lights series for Belardi Auto Racing. He switched to another team because he failed to bring the budget for the Prema Powerteam. In 2016, he proceeded to join the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup with Tristan Vautier.

In 2019, he signed with another team called the Chip Ganassi Racing, which help him earn the Rookie of the Year. In 2020, he also won his first IndyCar Race at the REV Group Grand Prix, then announced that he would be joining Arrow McLaren SP to replace Oliver Askew. Unfortunately in June 2021, he suffered a car crash as his car experienced a stuck throttle. He was taken to Detroit hospital, and thankfully, he didn’t sustain any life-threatening injuries.
