Criticizes Haas for Kevin Magnussen treatment

Former Formula 1 team owner Eddie Jordan now openly criticizes Haas for lacking ambition. It goes beyond Kevin Magnussen, Jordan believes.

Kevin Magnussen is a greater talent in a Formula 1 car than Haas gives the Dane the opportunity to display.

So accurate is his criticism of the American Formula 1 team, like the former owner of Jordan Grand Prix, which today is Aston Martin, Eddie Jordan.

The now 75-year-old Jordan tells it himself in the podcast "Formula To Success".

– If it were me and I was in that situation, I would concentrate on the technique, the speed of the car, the ability to do the job.

– Nico Hulkenberg and especially Kevin Magnussen – I worked with him (Magnussen, ed.) right after the Jordan era – are skilled dancers who can get the job done. No problems there, says Eddie Jordan.

The former team owner instead blames Haas, who he believes lacks ambition. The team doesn't even dream of winning a Formula 1 race, says the critic.

The Jordan Grand Prix also won four lobs. But Haas will probably never get that far, predicts Eddie Jordan.

– I cannot fathom their desire to win a Formula 1 lob. Whether it's the people on the team or their second-rate Ferrari engine.

– In lob streak the car looks okay. But in the qualification? They (Haas, ed.) don't have a chance. The team is only marginally better than Alpine, says Eddie Jordan.

Another one who is not part of the Haas garage, but still not laying hands on is Gunther Steiner.

In a column for the Formula 1 organisation, the now former Haas team boss gives vent to his thoughts on top of and after the sacking.

– In the course of the last few weeks, it is the first time that I have completely shut down Formula 1 in about a decade. And it has been good for me.

Among other things, he has no doubt that he made mistakes in the Haas garage. Also mistakes that cost money. Read more about it here .
