Hulkenberg hits out at ‘nasty’ Magnussen



Renault F1 speedy Nico Hulkenberg and Hass F1 driver Kevin Magnussen fight with an extraordinary words following the Hungarian Grand Prix clash.

With less than 10 laps to go, Hulkenberg tried to overtake the Danish driver on the outside but Magnussen – who earlier this week was openly criticized, the triple-time world champion Lewis Hamilton’s driving manner, during the practice – shunted Hulkenberg into the grass.

Following the Hungarian race incident, stewards quickly investigated and ultimately decided to give Magnussen a five-second time penalty for “forcing another driver off the track”, dropping him from P11 to P13.

After the race, Haas driver Magnussen interviewed by Norwegian television and responded to criticism from his Renault rival contains with many swear words.

Hulkenberg subsequently labeled Magnussen as a “dirty driver” before Haas boss Guenther Steiner hit back by describing Hulkenberg as a “bully” and “childish”.

During post-race TV interviews Hulkenberg, who was not completed the race, felt the need to confront the Dane.

“I congratulated him for being the most unsporting driver of the whole grid once again,” said the German.

“When it comes to racing, he’s just nasty. Hard defending is fine but when he does this, it’s just ruthless and sending people into the wall.

“What he did there, opening up the steering, making me run wide, it’s just being an ****** basically.”

Hulkenberg added that he intends to bring up the incident with race direction, saying: “I’ll go and speak to Charlie [Whiting].

“I hear he [Magnussen] got a bit of a penalty, five seconds, but in his mind he won’t care about that too much.”

Race Stewards verdict on Magnussen Vs Hulkenberg in full

‘Hulkenberg was overtaking Magnussen around the outside of Turn 2 on Lap 62. Hulkenberg was fully alongside Magnussen in the manoeuvre, and in fact a little ahead, and thus had the right to the racing line at the exit. Instead, Magnussen continued to use the full width of the track and forced Hulkenberg off the track at the exit of Turn 2.’
