Renault F1 boss admits ‘battles’ with departing Magnussen

Renault team boss Frederic Vasseur says he does not rule out working with Kevin Magnussen again.

Actually, the Danish driver is leaving the French works team after reportedly balking at the political situation at Renault and the offer of only a one-year extension.

Vasseur admits that he and Magnussen clashed.

“Kevin has his personality and I have my own personality,” he told BT newspaper. It’s has not always been easy. We have had our battles.”

But the Frenchman denies that those ‘battles’ explain Magnussen’s decision to leave for Haas.

“No, no, no,” Vasseur insisted. “In a long season, there are times of good news and good results, and harder times. But we got through it because we could always have a good talk and clarify the situation.

“I definitely want all the best for Kevin because he deserves it, and he did a good job for us. I hope that in the future we can meet again,” he added.
