After the American-owned team Haas removed Nikita Mazepin from their driver lineup, fans were very happy to see Kevin Magnussen return to the grid as he replaced the Russian driver. Now, K Mag has remembered what it was like returning to the team alongside Mick Schumacher, and he was keen to share his hilarious first meeting with the racing driver.
Sport1.de quoted Magnussen as saying the following:
“His very first words to me were ‘Suck my balls!’,” referring to Magnussen’s partnership with Nico Hulkenberg when their rivalry was ignited as Nico told Magnussen to, “suck my balls, honey,” during an interview at the 2017 Hungary Grand Prix.
Kevin is optimistic about his teammate Schumacher despite his poor performance so far in the 2022 season.
“He’s a top driver,” he told the press. “Many say he is only in Formula 1 because of his last name. He has earned his place in Formula 1. Mick is getting better every week and has already reached a new level in the first races of this season. He will get his first points in the near future.”♦ Follow Grand Tour Nation on Google News
