Now Kevin Magnussen wants to go back to the old Haas car!

Things aren't going smoothly at Haas right now. Romain Grosjean has opted to drive with the car from the Australian Grand as he believes the updates have taken the American team backwards. But now Kevin Magnussen also wants to do it! 

Perhaps he looked at the performance of his teammate during qualifying ahead of the German Grand Prix. Grosjean qualified in 6th, while Magnussen's result of P12 was more like the Haas of recent weeks. 

Kevin Magnussen would like to go after his teammate, but the Dane is currently trapped in Haas' current car. "The other car seems to be much more stable, regardless of whether it is hot or cold," the driver tells the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

“In the end, it's not my decision. We have to do what is best for the team. But I don't hide my feelings that I'd rather go back to the old car if it's possible. The package from Australia is faster. But we have to think about the long term."
