F1, Haas, Magnussen: “The car is very fast”

F1, Haas, Magnussen is optimistic after the Bahrain tests, in which he achieved the best performance of the second day.

They are F1 tests, of course, but Kevin Magnussen can only profess optimism after Sakhir’s laps with his Haas VF-22. Magnussen expected a much slower car.

These are the words of the Dane: “The car seemed quite good to me. I’ve been out of Formula 1 for a year and a half and it’s great to be in such a fast car again. I did some qualifying simulations, I felt really good. The car is very fast, I expected it to be slower to be honest. “

He adds: “The lap time on the second day of testing (1: 33.207, ed.) Was only eight tenths slower than Schumacher’s lap in qualifying last year (1: 32.449, ed). Considering the new regulations and the potential to be tapped, this car isn’t much slower than the old Haas and is still great to drive. “

Schumacher’s comment too

F1, happiness for the Haas VF-22 car is also shared by Mick Schumacher , who talks about the new teammate: “I think I can really benefit from his experience in the Circus, he is an excellent point of reference for me. He is someone with whom I can measure myself and who will allow me to express my qualities in the best possible way. “

He concludes: “I’m really curious to see how things will go with my new teammate, who also has a lot of experience within the team”.
