Magnussen pokes fun at new Haas F1 car on social media

Kevin Magnussen has made an amusing comparison following the launch of the new Haas F1 car on Friday morning.

Former Haas F1 driver Kevin Magnussen has taken to social media to poke fun at the team's new car, which was launched on Friday. Magnussen shared a reaction to the online unveiling on Instagram with flame emojis and an image of 'Herbie', the fictional Volkswagen Beetle star of Disney film and television – which features famous red, white and blue racing stripes. Haas have stuck with the white, blue and red colour scheme on their VF-22 – the corporate colours of title sponsor Uralkali. Magnussen raced for Haas from 2017 to 2020 but was dropped - along with Romain Grosjean - for the 2021 season, when the outfit opted to bring in an all-rookie pairing of Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.
