Magnussen gets the short stick in Giovinazzi deal – but why?

Kevin Magnussen will relinquish his seat at Haas for six FP1 sessions this season as the US outfit awards Ferrari hopeful Antonio Giovinazzi free practice mileage.

Romain Grosjean will give up his seat to the Italian for just one FP1 session, in Mexico, without Haas explaining why the Dane has found himself with the short stick compared to his team mate.

Jens Winther, Danish broadcaster TV2’s F1 expert has offered a possible reason for why Magnussen will be on the sidelines on Friday mornings more often than the Frenchman.

“It is unfortunate for Kevin,”  said Winther.

“If there is something positive in it, it may be that the team believes Kevin can cope without the Friday sessions more than (Romain) Grosjean can.

“We do know that Grosjean has problems with the brakes, while Kevin is comfortable with them. It could be one of the reasons,” Winther speculated.

“Unfortunately, it could also be simply about Kevin’s points situation, as he has fewer points than Grosjean,” he added.
