Magnussen hits back at Alonso: 'He thinks he's a god!'

Written by  Sep 01, 2018

Kevin Magnussen has responded to Fernando Alonso after the Spaniard slammed the Dane for their incident during qualifying for the Italian GP.

The pair came to blows at the first chicane at the start of their final flying laps in Q2, with the McLaren driver suggesting they met in the middle as Magnussen opted to overtake a number of slow-moving cars entering Parabolica rather than create his own gap.

Unsurprisingly, the current Haas driver had a different view and pulled no punches in giving his opinion.

“I can’t wait for Alonso to retire, he thinks he’s a god,” Magnussen said. “He overtook me into Turn 1 and ruined both of our laps.

“I think we could have got P7, the best of the rest, so that is pretty annoying.”

The stewards later deemed it all a racing incident because their battle into the first corner "did not specifically constitute unnecessary impeding by either driver, notwithstanding the fact that both drivers lost their lap".

Both McLaren and Haas team bosses were seen in a heated conversation in the pit-lane after the incident and after a series of run-ins between the two teams this season, don't be surprised if this has a few more lines to cross yet.
