Kevin Magnussen Thinks Haas VF-22 Automobile Improve Hits “Bullsci”

There have been no apparent indicators in Hungary, however Kevin Magnussen thinks Haas has accomplished it by bettering their VF-22.

Haas have been the final staff to deliver their automotive a significant season improvement, though they did not actually need it as they accomplished back-to-back double factors in Britain and Austria in July – the primary time this had occurred for them because the closing two races of 2018.

Magnussen improved on the Hungarian Grand Prix however his teammate Mick Schumacher didn’t, though it was not instantly obvious from their respective performances.

The Dane duly edged out his teammate however they began thirteenth and fifteenth on the grid, however within the race it was Schumacher who completed 14th with Magnussen in sixteenth.

Nonetheless, Magnussen’s race was compromised by early contact with Daniel Ricciardo and he was proven the black-and-orange flag – which imposes a compulsory pit-stop for repairs – on account of what the staff tweeted was “minimal entrance wing injury”, which means a damaged endplate.

Nonetheless, to increase his personal darts analogy, despite the fact that Haas recorded “no rating” within the Hungaroring as a result of all his darts missed the board, Magnussen felt that the improve was an enormous hit.

“It is good that we’re upgrading and dealing as we’re and it would not appear like a failure. It seems to be like a bullseye,” mentioned the 29-year-old driver as quoted by

“We took every thing we may by way of information and testing over the weekend and I feel we noticed some positives.

“We have to give it a bit of extra time so we will get some extra efficiency out of it, however not less than we introduced an improve that we anticipated. We all know the potential is there.”

Magnussen admitted heading into the weekend that he was involved about the opportunity of the upgrades being detrimental to the automotive’s efficiency in 2019 when Haas launched new elements.

It will have been the latter, on condition that Haas has been having fun with a greater marketing campaign than most outdoors the staff anticipated – he has amassed 34 factors and is seventh within the constructors’ standings.

“At the least it would not appear like we have taken a step again with it,” Magnussen added. “My automotive seems to be a bit of higher and that is constructive.”

A tough facet was the new and dry climate circumstances on Friday, with FP3 held in heavy rain on Saturday morning earlier than qualifying and a race in cooler circumstances with rain seemingly by no means far-off.

“From a driver’s viewpoint it is not straightforward when it is like this and moist follow would not assist,” Magnussen mentioned. “It simply complicates your life.”
