Kevin Magnussen admitted to being less than satisfied with the outcome of the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday as the Renault Sport F1 driver finished fourteenth, ending the team’s run of two consecutive points finishes.

The Dane was one of a few drivers to start the race on the mandatory set of hard tyres but struggled in the initial stages in comparison to those on the soft and mediums around him, and ultimately was unable to match team-mate Jolyon Palmer, who finished twelfth.

“I started the race on hard tyres against others around me on the softs and mediums – it was always going to be tough today,” admitted Magnussen.

“We can’t be completely satisfied with today’s race after scoring points in the last two races but we will work hard to get back into point-scoring position in the coming races.”

Magnussen now goes into the United States Grand Prix in two weeks time eager to return to points scoring form on a track he admits to enjoying.

“The next round is in the USA and it’s a pretty cool track to drive so I look forward to being there next,” said Magnussen.
