Kevin Magnussen is not the kind of guy you can argue with. The Danish had been playing the role of protagonist in clashes and sarcastic comments ever since his arrival into the Major Formula. During the Brazilian GP https://www.motorlat.com/notas/f1/13796/brazilian-gp-giovinazzi-i-am-so-happy-to-celebrate-my-renewal-with-all-those-points the addressee of his harsh words is Ricciardo.

The Australian accidentally hit the Haas driver in a desperate attempt to overtake him and try to catch some points but everything ended up with an accident. Ricciardo lost his chance and Magnussen had a turnover outside the track- his race ruined as well.

Magnussen had a super clear vision of the action and immediately talked to the team radio- “He’s an idiot!”

What would be expected is a response by Ricciardo, who was penalised with 5 points, in a harsh race for his team. Renault watched his client team McLaren making it to the podium with Carlos Sainz- a driver who used to be theirs.

The Australian spoke to Sky after the race and shown his big smile for a big result, an overall 7th place with the penalty.

“After the accident a seventh place was beyond imagination, so I am quite content with it”- then he talked about the dynamics of it – “He was close, but I’ve touched him and he turned over. Sometimes you can do these moves without any consequences, other times you touch the tyres and it ends like this. You used to think that the race is over but we held on and we made it. The restart with the safety car was fun. Now there’s another race and I can’t wait!”

A mature gesture from Daniel Ricciardo and his optimism is a pleasure to hear. Let’s get ready for the last Grand Prix of the season.
