A Season In Review VI: Kevin Magnussen

K-Mag's points were instrumental in Haas improving to 5th this season

1y ago


Considering Haas only entered F1 in 2016, the progress they have made since then has been impressive. Pre-season testing implied they had the 4th quickest car and this was confirmed in Australia when Magnussen was on course for big points. An unfortunate retirement followed, but P5 at Bahrain kept he faith of a good season alive for Magnussen.

Arguably, that was as good as it got but the rest of the season was far from a disappointment. He regularly outperformed teammate Grosjean and kept the scoreboard ticking over for an eventual 9th place in the championship standings.

56 points wasn't the maximum he could have achieved for the year but it was a reasonable tally for what he had available to him. The Dane will be hoping this acts as a springboard to perform even better in 2019.
