Kevin Magnussen lacked regularity since his arrival at Haas and he has not managed to shine in the last round at Barcelona. Determined to be competitive here, the Danish opened his Monegasque week-end in a good way with the 13th place in free practice 1 and a 9th position in free practice 2.
« I’m pretty happy with the day, says the former Renault driver. We got everything done that was on our program. The car’s not feeling bad, so I’m looking forward to qualifying Saturday. »
Capable to go one second faster between the two sessions of the Thursday, the Haas driver has been impressed by the new F1’s performance on this twisty track.
« It’s very fast there, enjoyed the Danish. If feels amazing and it’s really good fun to drive. Let’s hope we can be competitive as well. »
