Magnussen ‘surprised’ after Melbourne practice crash

Kevin Magnussen swiftly took responsibility after crashing his McLaren-Honda in Melbourne practice.

The Dane is filling in for Fernando Alonso this weekend, as the Spaniard continues to recover from his mysterious Barcelona testing crash.

After returning to the paddock, Magnussen initially told Sky’s pitlane reporter Ted Kravitz he was “surprised” to have lost control of the MP4-30 at turn 6.

He vowed to “look at the data”.

Lotus reserve Jolyon Palmer agreed with Magnussen that it was a “slightly strange incident”.

But Magnussen promptly ‘tweeted’: “The crash was my mistake.

“Just lost the rear on the entry and unfortunately hit the wall and damaged the left front.” (GMM)
