Magnussen to make shock F1 return with Haas

Haas have confirmed that they have replaced Russian driver Nikita Mazepin with Danish racer Kevin Magnussen, who has secured a return to F1.

Haas have handed a Formula 1 return to Danish driver Kevin Magnussen ahead of the 2022 season. The Dane, 29, has signed a multi-year agreement with the US-led team to become Nikita Mazepin's full-time replacement. It comes after Mazepin saw his contract, along with the contract of Russian title sponsor Uralkali, terminated.

Magnussen back with Haas

Magnussen returns to the team where he spent the bulk of his first career in Formula 1, from 2017 to 2020. He was promoted to F1 by McLaren back in 2014 and scored a podium in his first race outing in Australia. Magnussen then moved to Renault for the 2016 season before being signed by Haas in 2017, where he would race as teammate to Romain Grosjean for four consecutive seasons. For 2021, the pair were replaced by Mazepin and Mick Schumacher, but now team boss Guenther Steiner has welcomed Magnussen back.
