Kevin Magnussen looking for a new challenge outside F1

Earlier today Kevin Magnussen announced that he will not be drivng for Haas in 2021. The Danish driver has driven for the American team for the past four years alongside Romain Grosjean, who is also leaving. The Dane has hinted at a possible shot at IndyCar.

"I haven't won any races in seven years and it wouldn't happen in 2021 if I continued in Formula 1. That is why I am now looking for a new challenge in other classes," said Magnussen in conversation with the Danish BT.

No seat next to Verstappen

This statement by Magnussen immediately puts to bed the rumours that a spot at Red Bull Racing next to Max Verstappen might have been looked into. Alexander Albon has been underperforming for months and Red Bull are said to be looking for a strong second driver who can help in the battle against Mercedes in 2021.

Magnussen will have a total of 120 F1 races on his CV at the end of this season, in which he only took one podium.
