Danes are not usually noted for being controversial and outspoken but no one has said that to Kevin Magnussen.
The second-generation driver rocked the Formula 1® pitlane when he finished second in his debut Grand Prix at Albert Park with McLaren in 2014 but he has never quite reached the same heights again.
Last year’s ninth in the Drivers’ points was a career best and at 26 ‘KMag’ now has a combination of maturity and youthful enthusiasm. The team scored 93 points last season and he scored 56 of them.
While Magnussen admits he is “a bit bored” by fighting at the front of the F1® ‘second wave’, whether he can move forward and perhaps back onto the podium depends on whether Haas can take a big step. He now has the consistency to provide results; whether he does or not is up to his team.
Either way, his post-race quotes will be worth listening to.
