From 14th on the grid, Magnussen found the extreme wet tyre particularly potent in the first six laps when the circuit was at its most slippery, and carved his way up to fourth by the end of lap three.That put him in touching distance of the top three but, as the circuit began to dry out, the crossover point between intermediates and wets began to close in.In measuring Magnussen's early tours ...

Last year's VF-23 was somewhat peculiar; although it showed great pace in qualifying in Nico Hulkenberg's control, tyre management issues plagued it in the races. The drivers stated that, to make it to the end on conventional strategies, they had to stop racing the cars around Haas and effectively pin their hopes on the whims of fortune.This year's car is a different prospect. The team's test ...

The Dane was heard to query a decision to pull out of a lap during Q2, in which he was slightly up on his delta from his opening outing of the session on the run up to Massenet. He was given the command to back out as early as Beau Rivage, and instead prepare for another attempt next time out.But this lap fell shy of his initial marker, a 1m11.725s, which consigned Magnussen to an exit from the ...

Under F1’s penalty points system – introduced in 2014 – some of his rivals have approached the threshold of 12 points and automatic suspension for one event. Daniil Kvyat in 2017, Lewis Hamilton in 2020, and Pierre Gasly last year. But their time close to the limit lasted just a few months in each case.Rewind 27 years and Jacques Villeneuve faced having to go nine races with a suspended race ...

Twice this season, in Saudi Arabia and Miami, Magnussen has acted as rear-gunner for his Haas team-mate Nico Hulkenberg in holding up rivals behind him – even if it has meant running wide on occasion.In Miami, his antics earned him three 10-second penalties for leaving the track and gaining an advantage – as well as penalty points that have left him on the verge of a race ban.The Dane was ...

Magnussen's last three race outings – the Chinese GP, Miami sprint and Miami GP – brought him from three licence penalty points to 10, just two short of the FIA's limit for F1 drivers earning a race ban. This was introduced into the FIA's superlicence system in 2014.While his Shanghai and main Miami race penalties were considered slam dunk cases given Magnussen's actions put Yuki Tsunoda and ...

In Miami's sprint Magnussen was handed three 10-second penalties for leaving the track and gaining an advantage, which meant the Haas driver was able to keep Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton behind. He also received a fourth penalty, this time a five-second addition, for leaving the track for no justifiable reason that bolstered his penalty points tally in the process.While Magnussen ruined his own ...

The perennial fascination with Formula One is that even seasoned fans cannot predict the heroes and zeroes of a race weekend. Here we are locked in the doldrums of another Red Bull demonstration season, with news that its genius designer Adrian Newey would rather head to the south of France in a camper van than further endure the seedy goings-on at Milton Keynes (don’t blame him), and who ...

The Dane had an incident-filled time in Miami last weekend as he got involved in skirmishes in both the sprint and the grand prix.But it was the two penalty points he was given for colliding with Logan Sargeant in the race that has left him with a total of 10 on his licence, meaning he is just two away from an automatic race ban.Should he hit the mark and earn any more points over the remainder ...

Mirroring his tactics from the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Magnussen again held up midfield rivals to help Haas team-mate Nico Hulkenberg secure points in the sprint race.This time Magnussen went off as many as four times to avoid losing places, which ended up costing him 35 seconds worth of penalties, but crucially didn't prevent him from keeping track position until Hulkenberg was safe to collect ...

The Haas driver picked up three separate penalties in his battle with Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton for leaving the track and gaining an advantage.Magnussen's driving mirrored tactics he used in Saudi Arabia earlier this year where, once penalised, he was able to defend to such an extent that team-mate Nico Hulkenberg could cement a point-paying position. Following the sprint, Magnussen told Sky ...

Hulkenberg was one of several cars to stay out under an early safety car in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, a strategy which backfired for McLaren's Lando Norris and Mercedes man Lewis Hamilton as a necessary second safety car never materialised.Hulkenberg also needed to make a green flag pitstop, which would have normally dropped him out of points contention. But behind him, Haas colleague ...

Magnussen's own Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was ruined by incurring an initial 10-second penalty for contact with Alex Albon in the Williams.His focus then shifted to holding up others so team-mate Nico Hulkenberg, who hadn't stopped under an early safety car, could pull out a gap and claim 10th. Crucial to that strategy was overtaking the RB of Yuki Tsunoda on lap 17, which Magnussen did by leaving ...
