Insider: F1 exit very likely for Magnussen
Oct.20 - Another F1 insider has chimed in to consider Kevin Magnussen's next move.
Magnussen, 28, appears likely to be ousted at Haas for 2021, with the small American team apparently speeding towards a potential Mick Schumacher-Nikita Mazepin lineup.
Indeed, Nygaard said even backmarker Williams is unlikely to rescue Magnussen's career.
"They have new owners and that may open up new opportunities, but the new owners know full well that 2021 will be a transition season that they just have to survive before the whole new set of rules for 2022.
"Sporting considerations are therefore likely to be behind economic considerations, and it would take way too much money to squeeze George Russell, who is associated with the Mercedes engine deal, and Nicolas Latifi, whose father has given the team huge sums of money, out of the field's worst team.
"So I can see Kevin Magnussen's Formula 1 career becoming another victim of the corona crisis. It will be exciting to see where he continues his career, but he told me at the Nurburgring that he will not settle for a reserve driver job.
"He will race and win in 2021."
