Pre Race

Time to go racing in the streets! After the cancellation of the Imola race, our favorite Formula 1 driver Kevin Magnussen and the MoneyGram Haas F1 Team is more than ready for new challenges in Monaco. The prestigious race is one of the calendar’s absolute highlights, and K-Mag has tackled the Principality’s roads six times during his Formula 1 career.
“Monaco is a special event for me, one of the most special of the season. Monaco is the best place to drive a Formula 1 car. Of course, it’s very narrow and it’s a small track, but it’s fast so you really feel the speed. Qualifying is the most important part of the Monaco Grand Prix weekend. Communication with the team and trying to set yourself up with a little bit of extra tire temperature and brake temperature before having to bunch up in the queue before you start your lap is important,” says Kevin Magnussen.
FUN FACTS: The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most iconic events on the sporting landscape. It was first run in 1929 while in 1950 it was part of Formula 1’s inaugural World Championship season. The Circuit de Monaco stretches out across only 3.3km of the tiny Principality and while it is Formula 1’s shortest circuit it packs a lot into its layout. The 19-turn track means drivers rarely have a chance to draw breath, with the challenge heightened by the proximity of the barriers, and the blind nature of several of the corners…

Day #3

“We tried everything”
Tough day for Kevin Magnussen who finished on a P19 at the Monaco Grand Prix, round seven of the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship, held Sunday in the streets of the Principality.
The Dane started the race from a P17 and gained a spot before passing Williams’ Logan Sargeant into the famous Mirabeau Haute corner. However, K-Mag extended his stint on slicks while the rain fell, and a wide slide before his pitstop cost him positions – and a new front wing. Magnussen returned to the race at the back of the field before pulling into the pits in the closing stages of the race. 
“We tried everything. We tried to do the opposite of everyone, and it didn’t work out. Initially, in the dry, it was looking interesting but then when the rain came, I stayed out hoping for a safety car or a red flag, but that didn’t happen of course. We ended up last, put the full wets on but we couldn’t get them started at all, so the race was over by then. There are a lot of incentives to take risks when you’re outside the top 10 and that’s what we did today, but it didn’t work out. Next week is another race week,” said Kevin Magnussen.
