Magnussen will undergo surgery on his hand

It has been announced that Haas F1 driver Kevin Magnussen will have surgery on his left hand in the upcoming week.

While Kevin Magnussen is anticipated to be fully recovered for the only Formula 1 pre-season test starting at Bahrain on February 23rd, his participation in the 24 Hours of Daytona is uncertain.

“I had a sore wrist so I went to the doctor to have it looked at and they found a cyst that needs to be removed now so I can be ready for the F1 season,” explained the Dane.

“It’s a harmless procedure, but I probably need to rest for a couple of weeks afterwards.

“I need to wait and see what the doctor says, but it’s unlikely that I can race at Daytona.”

Haas issued a brief statement on the matter, which began, “Kevin Magnussen has kept MoneyGram Haas F1 Team fully briefed on his requirement for minor hand surgery.

“The team is looking forward to Kevin being at full strength for his pre-season testing commitments starting next month.”


As per Magnussen’s own statement, his participation in the opening of IMSA SportsCar Championship at Daytona later this month is uncertain.

He was planned to co-drive a Porsche 911 GT3 R in the GT Daytona class with his father Jan, Americans Trenton Estep and MDK Motorsports team owner Mark Kvamme.

“It’s an unfortunate situation for us, but the MDK Motorsports family fully supports Kevin,” said Kvamme.

“Kevin’s F1 schedule has highest priority, and the sooner he’s fit for fight, the better.

“The doctors will decide whether he will be able to race with us.

“If not, we’ll find another opportunity to go racing together.”

The Roar Before the 24 test starts on Friday (January 20, local time) and the race itself on the weekend after that.


Nico Hulkenberg will be sharing the Haas garage with Kevin Magnussen this year, as he was appointed to take the place of Mick Schumacher.
