Haas driver Kevin Magnussen believes Formula 1’s 2022-spec cars allow “more room to push and attack” and that he is enjoying the new style of racing.
Formula 1 introduced overhauled technical regulations for 2022 with Magnussen unexpectedly returning to the championship after a year’s absence.
Magnussen has scored points at three of the four grand prix held so far this year in his and Haas’ best run since 2018.
“I think there’s been a positive change with these new cars in terms of racing each other and I’m certainly enjoying it,” he said.
“It feels like there’s a lot more room to push and attack.
“I feel acclimatised, I’m still working as hard as I can on getting back to full fitness, but I’ve made some very good progress and am getting there.
“I feel like every race so far has been a real joy and I look forward to every race, whether it’s in Europe or outside.”
Formula 1 will this weekend compete at the Miami International Autodrome for the first time and Magnussen is optimistic that the circuit will provide opportunities for good racing.
“There’s two big overtaking opportunities with these two very long straights,” said Magnussen.
“The track then has a good mix of high-speed and very low-speed sections, from T4 to T11 is high-speed and from T11 to T16 is super low-speed so there’s a good mix and with two long straights to overtake, hopefully it will make for a good race.”
