    Just remember that the fact he's raced in F1 at all already puts him in the top tier of drivers worldwide. He'll go on to do GT/Blancpain/Something like that, just as many have before him that didn't quite get a good season or two in F1.

    Yet another driver thats good enough but in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not the politest on the track, but neither was Senna, after all who said F1 was an 'excuse me'. There's a couple still with seats in F1 that shouldn't have...... It's not Magnussens fault, Haas started of well, but have gone backwards. Haas has stood still because they followed a blind alley for a few seasons, 2019 being the worst simply because they think that buying off the shelf parts from Ferrari would give them bolt on performance. It's the right way to go, but Haas still needs to plough more into their own chassis development. Perhaps it's now time to do their own chassis building instead of Dellara doing it for them.

    This is a ramble'errrr. But I wanna reminisce. Thinking of all the tantrums, the bitchin, the rookie mistakes people* have made while coming up thru f1 - and everyone makes some form of error(s) - has K. MAG always been relatively solid and dependable? If a small(er) f1 team needed a reliable driver then i think he is a safe bet. *until now ive never thought of the massive contrast between K. MAG and Big-Jean's early f1 careers. Poor Romain first only got a short first season then was cast aside again. Then on his return was ridiculed by pundits, officials, fans and even drivers, for often not making the first corner and taking out others in the process. I remember him not even making the grid at one race as he crashed on the way. Obviously when u take out the blue and yellow cars or ESPECIALLY those red cars, you get banned. He seemed to learn a lot in a short period of time alongside kimi tho and was real quick in that Lotus. KMag had an amazing entry (2nd in OzLand!) altho after that he seemed to stay relatively low-key. Massively low key in f1 2015 ;) but I wish i could see him up against someone like Ricciardo or Vettel now. Such a shame. Hope everyone's doing good.

      Haas havent listened to their drivers since the end of 2017, Steiner admitted that in winter testing this season. Just look at 2018/19. Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Haas all fell off at the same time in the same areas of development. All 3 teams were suffering with very similar issues. Ferrari listened to their drivers, removed upgrades and regained performance immediately. Alfa Romeo eventually listened to their drivers. Haas didn't and continued down that blind alley. That's because of Haas limited budget, believed everything seen on a simulator instead of looking at what Ferrari and Alfa Romeo were doing with those upgrades but more crucially, their drivers! If Haas removed them and literally gone back to a late 2017 car, they would have gone backwards initially but they would have stayed where they were on the grid and points wise. Where they were miles ahead of teams such as Williams and Force India (Racing Point) and about level with Sauber (Alfa Romeo) and Toro Rosso (Alpha Tauri), they are at best just ahead of Williams. Now Haas are 2 full seasons behind the rest and apart from the poor Ferrari engine performance, it's showing up imassively in the chassis. With the new rules and regulations on hold for one more season, they are in no mans land because whatever they do for 2021 will be completely wiped out on the new 2022 car. You'll most probably see Williams get in front of Haas in 2021 and unless Haas ploughs substantial amounts into their 2022 car to regain what they had, they'll be down and out. Any new driver going to them will be gone with a F1 career left in tatters. I was routing for Haaas to do better and prove what they were doing was the right way to go, and still believe it is, but they also need to listen to 2 considerably experienced drivers when they say something isnt working and simply put it down to them moaning like Steiner was!

    We always feel bad for drivers like this, who 'under achieve' versus what we think of their skills, before leaving the sport for good. At a certain point I think it's good to embrace that it's this way for *most* drivers in F1. At least K Mag had a long career and one where he gained a reputation for being a strong, hard-headed racer. What more can you really ask for in a sport dominated by one or two teams over the course of a decade? Likeable guy, fierce driver, and I bet he'll have plenty of fun elsewhere in the future

      That's a really good way of looking at it, and puts my thoughts into words better than I could. Yes it would be nice to see loads of drivers get cars "they deserve" and get to stay in the sport until they're done, but it's not how it works. Magnussen even got a podium on debut, not what most manage.

      To be fair Hulkenberg has been linked with the RedBull seat and when they were both in a competitive cars, Hulk and K-Mag would often trade best of the rest finishes. In the same machinery there would be little to split them. It’s a real shame that it looks like neither of them are going to be on the grid next year. Perez too also looks like he might be out of a seat. Shame to lose them from the grid.

    1:00. Drivers today are total pussies. Remember back in the mid 90's every time the car changed gear the driver's head would slam forward and back. Now these guys have got DCT transmissions and seamless shifts, if it breaks they decide to quit the race because it gives them a headache.

    Haas getting two new drivers on the grid won't help them at all. As much as I admired Gunther Steiner in the past he is completely at fault for all these wonky pitstops and quite frankly the worst F1 car on the grid. He never takes responsibility and always tries to put the fault on others, he lacks complete leadership and team management thinking he is the boss when in reality he wouldn't be in F1 if it wasn't for Gene Haas . Honestly for Haas to finish 5th in 2018 was all down to K mag and not Grosjean so he actually over performed in a seriously under performing car coupled with bad pit stops. Haas did K Mag dirty and for that I wish to see him back in F1 again hopefully in a better car.

      It's not all Steiners fault but you are correct. I've said similar above to someone. Steiner refused to listen to the drivers when they told the team the car wasn't working because of the upgrades and it got even worse in 2019. Haas rely on what the simulator says completely regardless of what the drivers say, and thats where they lost out. All they needed to do was revert to a late 2017 early 2018 car for mid 2019 and they would have most probably retained their position on the grid and championship. Now at best Haas is only just in front of Williams and as a result Haas could be down and out by the end of 2021!

    There's a reason why someone like George Russell has a brighter future in the sport opposed to someone like Kmag. At 28 you'd expect Kevin to be a bit more matured but he still feels very raw. At 22 George Russell toes the line very well, and is infinitely more mature so I think it's disappointing Kevin won't have any opportunities after this season.

      Remember drivers like Will Stevens, Lucas Di Grassi, Karun Chandock, Jerome D'Ambrosio, Giedo van der Garde, Rio Haryanto, Alexander Rossi, Roberto Merhi, Sergey Sirotkin, in the last ten or so years, that got pretty much 1 season or less for them to impress. I'm just comparing them to KMAG to think, is he better than all of them? Maybe, but definitely not one of those down below. ...... the chuffin legends, whos positions in history are secure. Yuji Ide- for his style, his car control at Melbourne... mirror, signal, reverse manoeuvre..... Dammit! Who stole reverse? (i realise finding reverse could be tricky... But he should've just gone forwards). O and his undoubted erm 'flair' - ask Albers about that. Markus Winklehock- for racing like a legend in his one race and me wanting to see him back the next race. Andre Lotterer- for being a legend, but not racing in his one race and coming out of it looking like a bigger champ! Alex Yoong- for being Malaysian. Its not a joke. It was great to have an East Asian driver way back then. Edit. Apologies for spellings.

    Nice to see Kevin mature over the years. Initially really didn't like him, felt like his racing was quite dirty but eventually I think he learned from it, in the later seasons his defensive driving was some of the best, it was hard but no longer dirty, close to the limit but never quite past it and frankly really entertaining to watch. You could argue there could've been some times where had he fought less and let a car through it may have been better for his race results but I like his fighting spirit and gave me an insight into the older style of racing that I am too young to have seen for myself... At 28 I still think Kevin was improving, I actually think he would've done pretty well in a front running car like a Red Bull for example as a support for Max. Hopefully he goes on to have success in another series!

      @L Maximus what do you mean he beat Jenson. In his first race? Over the season Jenson had over twice as many points.

      @scottspeed1000 Beat Jenson Button in the same car in 2014 in his rookie season. In 2018 he finished 8th in the driver's championship. He has a podium to his name as well.

    No real loss to F1, always thinks he is better than he really is, I would hate to think just how much he has cost the team just crashing into his own team mate.

      I agree, clueless. He crashes into everybody not exclusively his teammate.
