Kevin Magnussen In 2017 will be easier to overtake

Кевин Магнуссен: В 2017-м обгонять будет легче

The Haas racing driver Kevin Magnussen said that in the next season because of the new regulations will be easier to overtake, despite the fact that many believe the opposite.

“DRS should work more efficiently next year, as the grip and the downforce from the rear wing will be more, said Magnussen in an interview AUTOSPORT.com. — When you enable DRS, the car in front immediately feel the change, and it may have a positive impact on the race.

Many people think that the more downforce, the more difficult to approach the opponent. Let’s see how everything will happen.”

Magnussen admitted that eagerly awaits the start of the new season to try out the vehicle in combat mode.

“It’s good that the cars will become faster, said Kevin. We want to race to the limit. Cars of the past generation was very low grip and too high power.

Well, now we can act to limit and not to compromise the work with the tires, aerodynamics, balance and so on. I hope that the new car will be a kind of challenge.”

Because of the changing characteristics of new cars drivers have to undergo special training to cope with the possible increase in congestion in the turns.

“I have to admit that the cars will be harder to manage — continued Magnussen. — I’m motivated to take extra training because they can represent their favor. I like complex intense workout that is not limited to two hours on the bike or treadmill”.
