Magnussen blasts Hamilton’s ‘disrespectful’ tactics

Published

on

Haas F1 speedy, Kevin Magnussen says Mercedes’ ace Lewis Hamilton “always gets in the way” following he felt he was pull back by the Brit during practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Dane’s practice was limited to 11 laps following Antonio Giovinazzi hired his car in opening practice and the rookie heavily crashed it, suspending the Kevin getting out on track for FP2 while it was fixed.

When the Haas F1 ace did get out on track in the final half-hour, Magnussen felt he was held up by Hamilton and said to his engineer on the radio: “What is Lewis doing?”

When asked by Autosport about the incident, Magnussen said: “There’s no one in front of him and he still decides to go extremely slow in the last sector when I’m on a good lap.

“It’s just unnecessary for him to be that slow on the last sector, with no one in front of him. He always gets in the way so it’s not news. I only did four laps today and he managed to get in the way.”

Hamilton escaped consent after Magnussen’s Haas teammate Romain Grosjean claimed he held him up in qualifying for the British Grand Prix two weeks ago.

During the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, Magnussen labeled Hamilton as the “worst” offender for blocking. He said he hadn’t stated his issue to Hamilton in the past because “I don’t really speak to him”.

“What can I do? I’m not driving his car. Some drivers just really don’t care. It would be the same when he’s on a good lap in qualifying one day, I’m not going to care. But we’ll see. There’s not anything illegal in what he does, it’s only a bit disrespectful.” He added

After the qualifying, Haas F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen qualified 15th and 16th, respectively. Lewis Hamilton made only fourth following the tyre vibrations issue.
