"Yes, I started and had the throttle full, and suddenly I realized that the wheels turned and turned, what which was unfortunate and quite embarrassing really. But that's what happened," Magnussen said to Motorsport.com.
"That was still a problem [in the race], but at least I already knew what to expect.
“This was on the first lap and I did not expect such a large gust of wind just in the tail. I showed everyone what they shouldn't do."
Magnussen had a terrible weekend and will hope to put things right next time out in Mexico.
