“It was the toughest race of my life,” Kevin Magnussen after a disappointing weekend in Miami

Post this week, F1 drivers raced for the first time in Miami, and Kevin Magnussen stated that it was the toughest race of his life. 

The Miami Grand Prix is a street circuit, hence all the drivers and teams spent a lot of time understanding and practicing the circuit. Yet, there were errors that were made, some because of crashes, some because of the weather in Miami. 

This was Magnussen’s first race of the year where he did not finish; after making contact with Lance Stroll in the Aston Martin in the very final stages of the race, Magnussen had to retire after a loose front wing, and hence scored no points.

Kevin was obviously disappointed after the race, as he believed he could have done more in the race. However, the heat of Miami was in no one’s favor, which increased the track temperatures, making it difficult for the drivers to adjust. Also, the track is temporary, so the quality of the track was “different” to what most drivers are accustomed to.

Kevin Magnussen has stated that they tried everything to perform their best, but yet they failed to score a point. 

“It was the toughest race of my life, it was just incredibly hot,

“It’s the way it is. We left no stone unturned, but we didn’t score any points,” Magnussen told Speedweek

Overall, Haas failed to score any point in the race after Mick Schumacher made contact with Sebastian Vettel in the Aston Martin, due to which Vettel had to retire, and Mick fell back a lot of places. 

Although the Miami GP felt hard for the team, they have been performing amazing compared to how they did in the past two years. 

The team stands 8th in the constructors’ with 15 points, all of them scored by Kevin Magnussen. 

Mick Schumacher is yet to score his initial points in his F1 career.
