Magnussen sweeps away his rivals in the intermediate group: “We are back where we deserve”


Haas lives on a roller coaster since the start of the season, being unable to maximize their potential and paying the consequences in the constructors ‘ championship. At least in the Spanish Grand Prix, Kevin Magnussen has been able to achieve the result that the car deserved for pace and speed, as his team-mate has not lasted more than three corners, and still with no points so far this year.

Romain Grosjean has organized quite a mess when you have lost control in the curve 3 of the first lap, running out of step with his own career and that of Nico Hülkenberg and Pierre Gasly. “there’s Not much to say, I lost the lag in the curve 3 and trompeé. If you look at the images, you’ll see that I tried to avoid contact with my team-mate. Kevin got out of hand a little and I got up the foot, then the car was totaled. I feel sorry for the other riders involved, I was not able to do much once the car I was”, said the French.

Kevin Magnussen, in contrast, had a career quite placid after being left alone too soon, as Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso, the drivers that most options were stand up, were harmed by the accident and lost position with Esteban Ocon and Charles Leclerc, riders with a slower pace. “I Made a out really good, it was next to the Red Bull, but didn’t really want to beat me with them and I knew they were much faster. My work consisted of keeping me seventh, and I was able to defend myself well and stay away from the problems in the first round, so I’m happy,”, admitted to the Danish.

Haas led the intermediate group in qualifying and again in race one, proving that the sixth place in the constructors championship should know little. “We had a solid performance this weekend, and I think that we deserve this kind of results that we have achieved in Bahrain, and here. we Should be able to score points in all the races and we have the car to do this, but we made some mistakes and suffered some setbacks that we have prevented. I’m happy to return to the position we deserve in the constructors championship”, said Magnussen.

We have again shown that we are at the top of the intermediate group

Gunther Steiner, director of the team Haas, said he regretted what happened with Romain Grosjean, but he praised heartily the seventh-placed Kevin Magnussen. “A good day, but could have been better. Romain won positions in the output, but the car trompeó and the race ended before time. Kevin did a solid job, his position was never in danger. After all, it is a good day and we are back to show that we are at the top of the intermediate group now”, said after beating clarity to the Renault and McLaren, however, held an advantage of 22 and 21 points respectively in the constructors ‘ championship.
