Kevin Magnussen felt hopeless on soft tyres at Belgian Grand Prix

Kevin Magnussen had another tough race for Haas. The car really struggled on the soft tyre and it wasn't until the second stint on the mediums that the car started to perform. Haas will hope that they can perform better at Monza this weekend. 

“The first stint on the C3 tires felt terrible, there was absolutely no grip and we were just falling down and getting overtaken all the time," said Magnussen. "I actually made the wrong call to stay out a bit longer on that tire, that was so bad because I felt it was hopeless, so we might as well just wait for a safety car or something like that.

"I felt that was my only chance to come back. Then when we eventually did pit for the C2 yellow tire, the car just came alive and completely back to normal and felt very good again. It’s so unpredictable and you don’t know what to expect.”

Haas have struggled with their tyres all season and will hope that this problem is resolved before too long and that they can get the results that they feel they deserve. 


Will Magnussen be in F1 next year?
