Magnussen bemoans big gap in F1

Date published: December 20 2017

Kevin Magnussen admits it is frustrating that Formula 1's top three teams have such a massive advantage over the rest of the grid.

Mercedes, who have won the double for the last four years, along with Ferrari and Red Bull have dominated the sport for the last decade.

Although Haas driver Magnussen happily concedes that the big teams will always be at the front of the grid, he says the huge gap between the top outfits and the rest of the pack is disheartening.

"It is very frustrating. It is something that I would like to see change in Formula 1," he is quoted as saying by Thenational.ae. "Of course you are going to have the best teams, the biggest teams, they are going to be the ones who win the championships and be at the top most regularly.

"But I think it would be good if it could be a little bit closer so as a midfield or smallest team if you had a mega race you should be able to get a little more of it."
