Kevin Magnussen celebrating F1 debut podium for Australian GP

Jan Magnussen will be in Malaysia this weekend.

The former McLaren and Stewart driver missed his son Kevin’s sensational podium on debut in Melbourne because he was racing a sports car on the other side of the world.

However, the 40-year-old Dane – who became a father at the tender age of 19 – will be at Sepang to watch Magnussen jr, 21, race a McLaren for the second time.

“Being 6000 miles away watching the race was not a lot of fun,” he admitted. “I do not want to do that too often.”

Magnussen admitted the speed of Kevin’s rise to the F1 podium, a feat he never achieved himself in his 25 starts, was surprising.

“He was good immediately but what is most impressive is how he developed and how he keeps getting better and keeps finding ways to improve,” he said.

“For the last couple of years he was extremely fast. The biggest change is how he is using his head and making things happen,” Jan Magnussen added.

As for this weekend at Sepang, “I can’t wait to be there to watch him,” Kevin’s father admitted. (GMM)
