When training for the Formula 1 final in Abu Dhabi began, there was significant difference between the two Haas-racers.
For the first had Romain Grosjean the hydraulic bagjulsophæng, in the second half of the season is used by the Haas-drivers of change. How effective it is, depends on the individual courses, and at Yas Marina, which mainly consists of slow vinkelsving and a few quick longitudinal side, it was a significant advantage.
For the second ran Grosjean with an aero-solution, which was based on a new bottom. It made his car more superior compared to Magnussens, and it was not surprising, therefore, that the frenchman was quickest Haas-runs during training.
As the new bottom in the Grosjeans car late on Friday was destroyed by a collision with Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes), was something of the frenchman's technical advantage, eliminated.
But he still had the hydraulic rear suspension, and that Magnussen still beat him by 3/10 of a second during qualifying, highlighting where approximately perfect the dane's place was On the paper was Magnussens 15.-space during qualifying, nothing special, but if you take a few technical deepen, was the result of one of the season's best laps.
In the course delivered Magnussen even a spectacular, effective the first place, and he stayed actually longer in the top 10 than usual. But the rest of the afternoon developed yet as the bulk of 2019 races:
He fought heroically, but fell in its inferior Haas VF gradually down through the field to a finishing position as number 14.
Thus even a approximately flawless weekend – and even an 8-figure in the character.
the Nature is the expression of the Formula 1 correspondent Peter Nygaards subjective attitude to Kevin Magnussens performance throughout the weekend. Nygaard has followed the Haas team close in Abu Dhabi, and continuously talked with Magnussen and team manager Guenther Steiner.Updated Date: 01 December 2019, 17:00
