Kevin Magnussen has returned to F1 in top form and his performances are constantly and consistently good. Today under the tricky Conditions in Montreal K-Mag gave his team another reason to smile with his 1:22.960; he was the 5th fastest behind Lewis Hamilton and ahead of Schumacher.

After the session Kevin talked to the media including MotorLat and praised the job done by the team.

“It´s a really good job from the team today in these conditions is really about, so much about sending you out at the right time figuring out how to use your lap and the team really did well today. So P5 and P6 really happy about that.”

Magnussen had a scare early on in qualifying as he almost hit the barriers in turn 2 during Q1 as he overshot turn 1 by a long way.

“It´s tricky. This is an old school track with lots of little puddles and many places where you can lose a wheel. It´s challenging.”

The Dane recognizes tomorrow´s challenge of having fast people behind them.

“There´s some fast people at the back and also right behind me. So, I´m certainly not thinking P5 is gonna be our target tomorrow. We´ll take it if we can of course I think our car is in the middle of the field pace wise in the race. So, we are starting a little bit on the fore foot because we´re P5 so let´s I´ll be very happy if we can stay in the top 10.”

Magnussen is also happy for his teammate Mick Schumacher, who's faced a lot of criticism recently.

“Pleased for him. He did a really good job. I could see that he was quick so really happy for the whole team.”

“We gotta get to the end tomorrow try to be in the top 10, play it smart [and] not try and do any miracles.”

On the forecast for the race he said: "After today, I´d like to have a wet race but I don´t think I´ll get my wish.”
