Magnussen ties the knot

Haas F1 driver Kevin Magnussen has used Formula 1’s August break to tie the knot with long-time sweetheart Louise Gjorup.

Danish media report that the pair were married in Nyborg, Denmark. The news broke after their friends posted photos of the low-profile event on social media.

Magnussen, 26, said in 2019 that he met his now-wife after re-assessing his life when he was dumped by McLaren following his F1 debut in 2014.

“When I got the rug pulled from under me, I suddenly had to consider some things in my life that I hadn’t considered before. And that was healthy,” he is quoted by BT newspaper.

“It occurred to me that life is even more beautiful if you can also look beyond motorsport.”
