Kevin Magnussen is relishing what he has found with the Haas team which he moved to after a season with Renault, and admits that he is impressed with how the team goes about the business of racing.

Speaking to reporters after his two days in the cockpit of the team’s VF17 challenger, Magnussen said,  “Yeah, it’s a really well organized team, We have a good bunch of guys here, good engineers, designers, and Dallara is doing a good job. Really impressed with them. They stepped up their game.”

“I wasn’t here last year obviously so I cannot tell really how they did then, but you know the job they’ve done this year with the quality of the car and the component and the chassis is very nice. Completely up to any of my previous experiences [McLaren and Renault]. I am very happy.”

Magnussen was the only driver this week to do back-to-back days in the cockpit and admitted that the new cars were more physical to drive, “It’s tough. Especially I found under braking it’s pretty hard on your neck. But I got through it, and it’s good to know where we need to work on.”
