“The car had half a second in it” admits Magnussen after neck pain in qualifying | RaceFans Round-up


Read Time:4 Minute, 51 Second

In the round-up: Kevin Magnussen says his car was quick enough for fifth on the grid after qualifying 10th.

In brief

Haas quick enough for fifth, says Magnussen

The Haas driver said his car “was better than P10 today” and he “didn’t get the most out of it.”

“Honestly, my neck is broken and the last couple of runs I just wasn’t able to drive properly,” Magnussen admitted.

“I just couldn’t hold my head in the corners, then you can’t control the car properly. But as I said, the car had more in it, I’m sure there was a half second in it.

“That time I got in Q3 was on used tyres and it wasn’t a great lap. So I think the car had half a second in it that would put it P5.

“So great job to the team for another strong car at this track and hopefully I can sort out my neck for tomorrow and get some points.”

Hughes disqualified from sprint race following technical infringement

Jake Hughes, who finished third in Formula 2’s Jeddah sprint race, has been disqualified after his car failed a post-race technical inspection.

The Van Amersfoort driver’s car was found to have no area of the plank which was thicker than 3.6mm. Formula 2’s technical regulations state that cars’ planks must be no more than 1mm thicker or thinner than 5mm at any point, prompting Hughes’ disqualification.

A three-place grid drop was also issued to Jack Doohan for a collision with Logan Sargeant on the first race restart, where Doohan began accelerating before cars ahead had fully got away.
