Kevin Magnussen, Haas F1 Team

Kevin Magnussen’s homecoming to Haas F1 Team ahead of the 2022 FIA Formula 1 World Championship also marked the Dane’s return to the sport after a year away.

Born into a racing family in 1992, Kevin Magnussen was welcomed into another racing family in 2017, as the native of Roskilde, Denmark, and the son of former Formula One driver and sportscar racer Jan Magnussen became a member of Haas F1 Team – a relationship that has now extended into a fifth season together.

Magnussen joined the American outfit for his third full season competing in the FIA Formula One World Championship in 2017 having previously driven for established marques McLaren and Renault Sport. He promptly delivered, scoring five top-10 finishes with a best of seventh in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. 

Cementing his place in the team with a stellar 2018 campaign, he finished a career-best ninth in the championship with 56 points from 11 top-10 finishes. Two fifth-place finishes, at the Bahrain Grand Prix and Austrian Grand Prix, were the personal highlights of the season for Magnussen. Together with Grosjean, his points haul propelled Haas F1 Team to fifth overall in the constructors’ standings in only its third season in Formula One, the duo scoring a team best five double-points finishes in 2018.
