Gunther Steiner recently issued a statement in which he diplomatically stated that he would like to have his former driver line-up, Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, as reserves, in case something happens during the season, which, at least in the beginning, will continue to be marked by the coronavirus. .
Official Peugeot driver
However, the Danish pilot was blunt stating that “Probably F1 is a closed chapter for me”. It is not for less because these words were issued during a press appearance that Peugeot organized after announcing who will be its pilots for the World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, among which is the Danish.
“I had a fantastic few years at Haas and Gunther is a good friend so I will always be open to listening and advice, but just one career? I’m not interested in that. I’ve been in Formula 1 for seven years and I miss winning, so thinking about doing another F1 race just to be there is not interesting to me. “, said Kevin, after following in his father’s wake and going on to compete in endurance, where he shone in the last edition of the 24 hours of Daytona.
Of course, F1 as a closed chapter has a but, well, as Magnussen said in a jocular tone, “If Mercedes calls, I’ll probably take it seriously.”
119 races, 1 podium
Magnussen made his Formula 1 debut in the 2014 season alongside McLaren, where he surprised with a podium in Australia, after benefiting from sanctions that lifted him to second place. In the end, his best result in Formula 1. In fact, his only podium. After a 2015 as a reserve driver, he moved to Renault in 2016. With only two races in the points, he collided with Abiteboul’s character, so he decided to change of scene, racing for Haas where he spent the last four years in fifth position as the best achievement, and with the feeling, especially in 2018, that that Haas could give more than he gave.
