The Haas racing driver Kevin Magnussen commented on the Grand Prix of China.
The Dane finished in eighth place and brought the American team their first points in the season 2017.
“Good race, that was fun, commented Magnussen. – In the course of the race I was happy with the car. The start was not the best way, so I had to come back and attack.
I watched as the front tyres, and I think that it was important in terms of maintaining the rubber in the desired mode.
The team controlled the situation during the race and the decision to go with intermediate tyres on the Supersoft worked well. Always more interesting to fight for points”.
The partner of the Danish team’s Romain Grosjean finished 11th.
“Funny, yesterday and today in front of me on the starting line crashed the car the same guy [Antonio Giovinazzi]. I had almost to stop, which led to loss of time, ‘ said the Frenchman. – Then on the restart Marcus Ericsson, who was driving ahead of me, for some reason, slowed down. I don’t know why he did it, but I also had to reset the speed.
In addition, after contact with Esteban Window in the first corner my car lost some aerodynamic elements on the right side.
Then I tried struggling but couldn’t break away from Jolyon Palmer. As soon as I did, I was able to immediately go at a good pace, but it was too late”.
