In his return to the category pinnacle of motorsport and as he faces another season as a Haas driver, Kevin Magnussen declares ready to race for the first time in Miami.

As one of the hot topics on the weekend, Haas arrives on home soil looking for competitive performance, as the Dane spoke to the media, including MotorLAT, about his expectations for the race.

“It’s awesome and makes you realize how big this sport has become, and that this set-up can be realized,” said Magnussen. 

“The track itself looks cool. I’d say it’s like a mini-Baku style circuit, with very long straights, a couple of low-speed corners, then a few high-speed ones. It’s certainly not going to be difficult to overtake if you have a pace advantage.”

Magnussen highlighted the importance of a good result this weekend for the only American team on the F1 grid: “It would be great to have a good result here,” he said.

“It’s America, I don’t feel like we’ve had that great result in the U.S. yet. We owe Gene (Haas) that, and we owe the U.S. Haas fans a good result, so we’ll try and do that this weekend.”

The 29-years-old driver was questioned on his relationship with Mick Schumacher, as they face the fifth race of the calendar as teammates in the 2022 season.

“It's very relaxed [the relationship], Mick is a nice guy. He knows what he's doing. I tried to be very open with him because he's very open himself. He's not someone who makes excuses. Is very easy to work with him. The team likes him and he's a great driver.”

Finally, as Formula 1 landed on American territory, Kevin Magnussen was asked whether the most important category of motorsport in the USA, IndyCar, was as competitive as the category pinnacle of motorsport, as the Danish gathered some experience on the American series jumping in an Arrow McLaren last year while he was off contract for F1.

“Absolutely, yeah. Is so different, you can't really compare. I was surprised by how difficult that car is to drive because is so different, but you can't compare. Certainly Indy is unbelievably competitive. Some of those drivers are super talented,” he concluded.
