Magnussen admits there is little chance of him returning to F1

Former Haas driver Kevin Magnussen has stated that his Formula 1 career is likely over after the 2020 season finale in Abu Dhabi this past weekend.

Magnussen has already shared his plans to race in the IMSA SportsCar Championship in the United States in 2021 after Haas announced that they will be running an all-rookie line up compromised of Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin in 2021.

I miss being in a winning position, it’s not realistic now to leave F1 and then come back to a winning position,” the Dane told Sky F1.

“If I was to stay, I’d want to move forward and go for wins and that’s not going to happen.”

Magnussen finished his final race for the American outfit in 18th.

“It’s a bit strange,” he spoke after the race.

“It wasn’t a good race for us at all, we were dead slow. I feel just grateful for having got the opportunity to live my childhood dream, have a career in Formula 1. It’s not an easy place to get to and I’ve had six seasons, with some amazing teams.”

Since his F1 debut in 2014, Magnussen has driven for McLaren, Renault and Haas with his best finish in the series being 2nd place during his first race at the 2014 Australian Grand Prix.
