McLaren-Honda F1 team director Eric Boullier has says that the team will not stop Kevin Magnussen, if he wants racing somewhere else.
Magnussen, raced for McLaren in 2014 F1 season, and downgraded to a reserve driver role this season following Fernando Alonso re-join Woking-based F1 squad.
The Dane determined to return to racing in 2016 F1 season. He has been linked to novice Haas F1 team while America’s IndyCar series is an additional alternative.
However, Boullier has admits that the team would have no problem, if they cannot offer him a open-seat on the grid next year.
“If we can offer him something here, a drive – and I’m not the only one to decide – yes, he obviously takes priority,” the Racing Director told Autosport.
“He is a McLaren driver, and he is always claiming he would like to race again for McLaren.
“But if we cannot then personally I would never stop him from racing somewhere else, of course.”
