Magnussen keen for Haas F1 commitment beyond 2024

Kevin Magnussen has stated that he is keen to commit his future to the Haas Formula 1 team, while teammate Nico Hulkenberg was more reserved over the prospect.

Kevin Magnussen has hinted that he is keen to remain at Haas beyond the upcoming season, insisting he has “unfinished business” with the squad.

Magnussen has spent several seasons with the US-owned outfit, linking up with it in 2017 just one year after it joined the grid.

The Dane was dropped at the end of 2020 but returned for 2022 and even managed to score a pole position at that year's Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

However, Haas has otherwise had limited success in F1 and is yet to claim a podium finish in its eight-year association with the sport.

With several drivers out of contract at the end of the year, including Magnussen, the 31-year-old has set his sights on achieving top results with Haas going forward.

“I’ve certainly invested a lot in this team,” Magnussen told media including RacingNews365.

“I've been here for almost the beginning and I have unfinished business. I want to get on the podium with this team and see some kind of climax [for] all the work that's gone into it.

“We've had some tough years and then turned it around and got back. The success of this team, I feel like we haven't seen it yet. I want to get there.

“About the driver market this year, I know that there's a lot of drivers available out of contract. But honestly, I haven't thought about it that much.”

Hulkenberg aiming to 'stand out'

Magnussen's teammate Nico Hulkenberg is also out of contract at the end of the year and is likely to attract attention amid his experience and positive performances for Haas season.

Addressing his own future, Hulkenberg declared that he is aiming to drive in a way that allows him to “stand out” in the driver market.

“Naturally, no racing driver is patient,” Hulkenberg said. “We always want it yesterday and more unless you’re winning, and that's only one guy.

“So once the season starts and we have a few races behind us, a certain dynamic will happen, things will start to pop up and appear or not.

“That all depends on how the next couple of weeks go. I'm fairly relaxed about it.

“Obviously, the best thing I can do is to perform to be convincing to deliver the maximum I can and stand out that way.”
