Magnussen vows to remain hard but fair on track in 2018

Written by  Mar 05, 2018

Haas F1 driver Kevin Magnussen has vowed to remain firm but fair with his driving on the track after gaining a reputation for aggressive manoeuvres last year.

The Dane was involved in several spats, most notably with Nico Hulkenberg at the Hungarian Grand Prix which led to a fiery post-race confrontation in the paddock but that would be the only race which saw the former McLaren driver penalised.

Looking ahead to 2018, Magnussen hopes to tread that line again in what is expected to be a very combative midfield by pushing the boundaries but remaining within the rules.

"With regards to racing against rivals, I only got one penalty last year and I need to learn from that. So this year, I’m going to try to drive just as hard without getting any penalties," he was quoted by PlanetF1.

Defending his approach, Magnussen put the emphasis on the stewards to determine how hard he can attack or defend from another driver, regardless of how that other driver may feel.

“I look at it like this, if I get a penalty, then I’ve made a mistake," he said. “That doesn’t mean I’m going to be any more friendly on the track. I hope to be even harder – just without any penalty.”
