Haas F1 driver Kevin Magnussen has says that, Fernando Alonso “thinks he’s a god” – both are involved in an incident during the Italian GP qualifying.

During the final top ten qualifying shoot-out Magnussen and Alonso raced on the start/stop strait, both are locked into the turn one, and its resulted both drivers lost their lap.

Magnussen remained unimpressed with his McLaren rival and said: “I can’t wait for Alonso to retire, he thinks he’s a god.”

The stewards ruled “the incident between car 14 [Alonso] and car 20 [Magnussen] at turn one did not specifically constitute unnecessary impeding by either driver, notwithstanding the fact that both drivers lost their lap.”

Alonso says after the incident: “We were all together on the out lap in the last corner,”. “He decided to overtake in the last minute and fill in between two cars and we were already starting the lap. We had to compete into turn one.”

“If it’s my fault probably the stewards will give me a penalty,” he said before the decision was announced. “I don’t think so because I was ready to prepare the lap and he filled the car in between two of our cars and use that gap.

“But obviously it was way too late in the out lap to choose to do that. We fought into Q1. He’s here, talking to the press, not in Q3, with a car that can be in Q3. For me it doesn’t change much, for him it was not very clever.”
