Magnussen on cloud nine despite leaving F1
For Kevin Magnussen, the world cannot go wrong for the time being. In January, his daughter Laura was born and on Wednesday morning, he posted an update about her. Laura was born seven weeks premature, but fortunately, everything goes well with her. It is therefore understandable that Magnussen is over the moon.
