Kevin Magnussen knows his F1 race seat is at risk

Haas driver Kevin Magnussen has candidly acknowledged the possibility of losing his Formula One seat ahead of the 2025 season.

With the 2024 Formula 1 season seeing no rookie debuts, the landscape is set to shift dramatically in the new season.

Promising talents such as Kimi Antonelli, Oliver Bearman, and potentially Liam Lawson and Jack Doohan, are all poised to make their F1 debuts.

This development spells trouble for the 31-year-old Magnussen, who has faced significant challenges alongside teammate Nico Hulkenberg at Haas this year.

Magnussen's season has been marred by inconsistent performances and controversy over his aggressive driving style. As a result, speculation is mounting that Esteban Ocon may replace him at Haas.

Unlike some of his peers, Magnussen has not been seriously linked with a move to another team, further complicating his prospects.

As new talents prepare to step onto the F1 stage, the Danish driver's future in the sport remains uncertain.

Asked by Ekstra Badet newspaper if he could lose his F1 drive, Magnussen said: "Yes, there is a risk of that happening."

"The (Haas) team knows me very well," he continued. "I am a known quantity to them. So I don't think I need to prove anything.

"The market is very open this time. We have to see how it plays out.

"I have made it clear that I would love to continue here. The team is in a good place with hope for the future. I would love to be a part of it.

"I don't know how long it will be before we know the outcome. Until then, I'll just keep driving. I don't really have a deadline.

"But I still think the market is quite open."
