Kevin Magnussen from the Haas F1 team wants to prove that he can race against the best teams by regularly challenging players such as Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.
Kevin Magnussen was the last driver to cross the checkered flag, having fallen significantly in the previous F1 Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
However, for the first few laps of the race, he battled against seven-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, who started from 19th at the back of the grid.
Kevin Magnussen has battled Lewis Hamilton for the second time this season, after edging him out in the sprint on Saturday in Austria.
“I like the challenge of racing Hamilton, Verstappen and Charles Leclerc because I think I can handle it,” said Kevin Magnussen.
“Maybe I never got the chance to prove to myself that I could do it.”
“I don’t think there are many drivers better than Max or Lewis, but there are drivers on their level and I want to know if I’m on their level.
Kevin Magnussen praised Max Verstappen’s achievements this season and his incredible 11 wins from 16 races so far.
“The combination of Max and his car is on another level,” said Kevin Magnussen.
“I don’t think anyone can do what he’s doing now.”
Kevin Magnussen, who returned to F1 this season and with the Haas F1 Team after a year away from F1, has started the 2022 season strongly, scoring points in three of the first four races.
However, Haas F1 Team’s performance has declined since then and since then Kevin Magnussen has only scored points at Silverstone and Austria.
