K-Mag makes move to ‘become better driver’


Kevin Magnussen has relocated from Denmark to Dubai during the off-season in a move that he hopes will make him "a better driver".

The Dane is preparing for his second season at Haas after accumulating 19 points last year to finish 14th in the World Drivers' Championship.

But now Magnussen is hoping to improve on that finish and feels cutting down on his travel time will help achieve his goal (whilst giving his bank balance an extra boost with the tax relief benefits in Dubai).

I have an apartment in the area called Dubai Marina, which is near the international airport," Magnussen said.

"Dubai is far more central than Copenhagen when you look at the F1 calendar.

"I can save a lot of travel days by living in Dubai that I can use for training. And the weather is similar to the temperatures of many F1 races.

"So it's something that hopefully will make me a better driver."
