Kevin Magnussen “The safety car on lap 16 was the worst” / Haas F1 Team F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Final[F1-Gate .com]

Haas F1 Team Kevin Magnussen finished 9th in the 2022 F1 Round 2 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix final.

With Kevin Magnussen choosing to start with hard tires, the early safety car was the worst of losing its advantage.

Still, Magnussen, who extended the first stint, made a pit stop in anticipation of a safety car retiring from Daniel Ricciardo, Fernando Alonso and Valtteri Bottas. As a result, it was a VSC, and the pit lane was closed and other drivers could not get an advantage without pitting in, but it showed good judgment.

“The worst thing we could do was start the opposite strategy with hard tires,” commented Kevin Magnussen.

“Most of the others were medium and the worst thing that could happen was the safety car on lap 16 or 17. It happened on lap 16. It’s still very good to get 2 points. And the car was amazing again. It was really fun to drive. “

“I was a little lucky with the last VSC, but if it was a safety car instead of a VSC, everyone would have condensed and scored big points again with the new tires.”

“I’m happy that the team did a great job and recovered from the difficult situation on Friday.”
