Magnussen admits talks with Renault F1 rivals

Kevin Magnussen has admitted he has been in contact with other teams because Renault is yet to sign him up for the 2017 season.

After the McLaren experience, the Dane returned to the grid this year with the new works Renault team, but the French outfit is believed to be toying with an all-new lineup for 2017 featuring Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez.

So when asked if he has any other options, Magnussen told Ekstra Bladet newspaper at Spa: “I think other seats will be available if I don’t get this one, but that’s not where my focus is.

“I will wait a little longer on what is happening here,” he added.

Asked if he has had any talks with other teams, Magnussen admitted: “Yes, I have.”

But for now, he said his focus is on ensuring his performances are top notch in all of the remaining races this year.

“Something I’ve learned in formula one is that people in the paddock have very short memories,” said the 23-year-old.

“If you have a really good run, suddenly you’re the best in the world, but if not, then you are on the way out because you’re not good enough. In F1, everything changes so quickly.”
