Canadian GP: Magnussen will miss F1 qualifying

Kevin Magnussen appeared to lose power heading into the seventh corner causing a heavy smash during the final practice session for Canadian Grand Prix, only a few hours before qualifying.

Kevin’s car heavily damaged, not enough time to repair it, and he will miss qualifying battle.

“It’s more of a precaution, and as we won’t do qualifying, it’s much better like this,” team boss Fred Vasseur told Motorsport.com.

“We want to manage it in the proper way and the best way.”

The footage was inconclusive; the Dane accelerating just before turn seven, and shifting to third gear, suddenly his rear tyres spun and hit into the wall – the heavy wall sliding resulted reserve bench for Kevin during the Qualifying.

Good news, Magnussen reported that he was “ok” and the RS01 was slowly returned to the pit lane – though it was the last thing the team needed after a succession of incidents.
