2024 Formula 1 British Grand Prix Highlights

 

Haas F1 Team

 

MoneyGram Haas F1 Team finished with Nico Hulkenberg sixth and Kevin Magnussen 12th at the 2024 Formula 1 British Grand Prix, Round 12 of the World Championship, held Sunday at Silverstone.

The result solidifies seventh place in the Constructors’ Championship for MoneyGram Haas F1 Team – with 27 points scored at the season’s halfway mark.

Nico Hulkenberg
I’m very happy for the team; eight more points on the board – are super valuable. More importantly, the performance is there with this update, which makes me optimistic for the remainder of the season. We’re in the fight now for the fifth-fastest team, which is obviously positive, and nobody expected that a few weeks ago. It’s very encouraging and very positive. It was a tricky race with the early rain, which wasn’t enough for inters. Around here, with high-speed corners and the grip like this, it was risky, but we managed to keep it clean and returned what we lost at the start.

Kevin Magnussen

We pitted one lap too early, I think. We were sort of in a range of Albon, and he stayed out another lap and opened the gap massively. The pace wasn’t that good on the soft tyre; I was graining immediately and didn’t have a good stint. It’s great for Nico to score eight points today. It’s been a great couple of weekends for the team, and it’s super important. I wish I could’ve contributed a little, but I didn’t have it.

Ayao Komatsu, Team Principal

It’s an excellent day. It’s a shame we couldn’t score points with both cars, as if he had not had that graining issue on the softs in the last stint, he would’ve been close to scoring points. Overall, P6 at two races in a row. What more can I ask for? The updates have worked again, and Nico felt it straightaway on Friday, his qualifying on Saturday, and his race pace today showed it. Kevin in the old spec car was happy, but I think he had damage from FP2, so today, these are results to be proud of. It wasn’t an easy race; there were changeable conditions, and it’s easy to say you only have to put the right tyres on at the right time. It’s much more difficult to do, but we achieved that. It’s been a huge team effort, so I’m really proud of them.
