Former race engineer Kimi Raikkonen joins Haas F1 team[F1-Gate.com]

The Haas F1 Team has hired former McLaren and Renault engineer Mark Slade as Kevin Magnussen’s full-time race engineer.

Mark Slade spent almost 20 years at McLaren as part of the engineering team, and after being Michael Schumacher’s race engineer for the Mercedes F1 team, he worked for ‘Team Enstone’ for 10 years under various team names.

His time at Enstone also includes race engineers Kimi Raikkonen and Esteban Ocon, who had previously worked together at McLaren. In 1991 he also worked with another F1 World Champion from Finland, Mika Hakkinen.

Mark Slade will join the Haas F1 team and become Kevin Magnussen’s race engineer, and will start that role from the next round, the Singapore F1 Grand Prix.

Ed Regan was Kevin Manugnussen’s race engineer at the start of the 2022 season, but Regan left the Haas F1 team at the end of the season and worked at the Banbury factory until then. So at Spa-Francorchamps and Zandvoort, Dominique Haynes, who had previously worked with Romain Grosjean and Nikita Mazepin, was the race engineer.
