the Formula 1 driver has been adult.
In the year am Kevin Magnussen to christmas. Because he is grown up. As a child and young hated the he christmas.
"Everything was just something the dung, when there was snow on the racetracks. Therefore, I was never in the christmas spirit. In many, many years I was completely gone, when it was winter and I could not run the kart. I was no good for anything in months, I had nothing. My life ended just about winter, and it was damn not fun," he says to B. T.
"Now it is different, for now I go and look forward to the holiday, to keep christmas and come home to Denmark and visit the grandmother, and grandmother. It is surely a part of becoming an adult," says Magnussen, who through the whole of december has had family and friends on julebesøg in the apartment London.
"I have been 27 years old and feel more or less adult. And with it came some new values of life. It is, of course, most of that I have been married to Louise. There were some new priorities and new values into my life."
"I see still the Formula 1 of everything else. But where I previously could not see other values in life than Formula 1, it is now a new situation. It is the many small, ordinary things in life, I have started to weight the higher. To have time with friends and family, for example."
Adult life, and the new priorities does not mean that Kevin Magnussen has lost focus on Formula 1. On the contrary.
"As Formula 1 is running, I have never been as good as I am now," he says.
"I actually think it is a strength that I have been extended and strengthened its foundation. Now I'm no longer completely on the bar bottom, if there is a headwind in my racing career. Earlier I could really be depressed if it went bad in the race."
"I also started to pleasure me completely wild to day to get a home where I can properly settle down, get a life, go for a walk with the dog. And get some children."
Kevin Magnussens dad, Jan Magnussen, was only 18 years old when he became the father. He was in time to construct a Formula 1 career and settled in England, which was long home to little Kevin in Roskilde. When Kevin came in Formula 1 and was asked what the most important thing he had learned from his father's career, he answered:
"That one should not become father at the age of 18."
Kevin Magnussen does not hide the fact that it was not always easy to grow up as the son of a Formula 1 driver, who rarely was at home.
at the same time, he says that it was great, because as a boy he came with Jan to the races. The same he will experience with his own children.
"I would have liked to have children, while I am still running the race. I have enjoyed watching my dad run, and I've got a lot of cool experiences on the account."
"It would be a shame if my children would grow up without seeing their father as a driver. It is so much a part of my identity that I would feel that they are not really known me, if they didn't get the part with."
