Steiner Criticizes Magnussen’s Controversial Miami Tactics: On the Brink of a Ban

Guenther Steiner Critiques Kevin Magnussen's Racing Strategies in Miami

Former Formula 1 driver Kevin Magnussen's tactics have been openly criticized by his previous team leader, Guenther Steiner, indicating a lack of pride in the approach taken.

Guenther Steiner has expressed his opinion that his ex-Formula 1 driver, Kevin Magnussen, should not take pride in his contentious strategies during the Miami race, which now have him facing the possibility of a race suspension.

Magnussen received three separate penalties, each 10 seconds long, for multiple instances of going off the track and benefiting from it. Additionally, he was given a five-second penalty for exceeding track limits while battling Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton in the sprint race at the Miami Grand Prix.

Throughout the weekend in Florida, the Danish driver accumulated five penalty points on his superlicence, putting him dangerously close to an automatic race suspension with just one more infraction.

Magnussen, having previously faced penalties in Jeddah for employing comparable strategies against Yuki Tsunoda, needs to navigate the remainder of the season with caution since he has already racked up all 10 of his points within the initial six races of 2024.

Ex-Haas team leader Steiner shared his thoughts on Magnussen's behavior with Sky Deutschland, stating, "The competition needs to be played fairly. It's acceptable to be assertive, yet we've observed such behavior for the second occasion [referring to Jeddah as well]."

"As a motorist, taking pride in your driving is impossible if it spoils another racer's experience."

Steiner argues that a drive-through penalty would serve as a more suitable consequence for repeated violations of these strategies.

"After you've secured the initial ten seconds, securing an additional ten seconds becomes irrelevant. This is why a penalty at the drive-through is unmistakably significant," he mentioned.

"You are then required to serve this penalty within several laps, after which you are removed from the situation and cannot create any more issues."

Magnussen acknowledged that his penalties were "fully justified" due to his "foolish strategies".

"I began employing these foolish strategies, which I'm not fond of," he shared with Sky Sports F1. "However, when it all comes down to it, I fulfilled my role within the team."

"Nico [Hulkenberg, Haas teammate] was able to earn his points because I created that space for him. Lewis and Tsunoda couldn't reach him. It's not my preferred way to race, but it was necessary today."
