McLaren’s new racing ace Kevin Magnussen has confirmed his next season car number. He will use number 20 for his first F1 season.
Kevin has revealed that he prefer the number as it was the one he used during his title-winning Formula Renault 3.5 campaign with DAMS in 2013.
“Here’s some news,” Magnussen tweeted, “My driver number will be 20 this year, which I won the @WSR_Live 3.5 titles with last year.”
Magnussen, son of ex-Formula 1 racer Jan, will be only the third rookie McLaren has fielded in its history.
FIA, which introduced the option of drivers selecting numbers personal to them, has not indicated when the final list might appear but, with testing due to kick off at the end of the month, and car launches before then, it cannot be far away.
