Magnussen's post-F1 career was going along nicely in American sports car racing before Haas gave him a lifeline, seeing him get a second shot in the top flight. His first stint started with blaze of glory with second place on debut for McLaren in Australia in 2014, but never reached anything close to those heights thereafter for Renault and Haas.
A multi-year contract to return was part of the attraction for the combative Dane, who is still young enough to rewrite a story that seemed over not so long ago.
