2016 F1: Magnussen still in play for 2017 seat ?


Kevin Magnussen remains in the running to keep his works Renault seat beyond 2016.

The Dane admitted at Hockenheim that speculation he and teammate Jolyon Palmer will lose their places for 2017 was "annoying".


 

But Denmark's BT newspaper says it knows that Magnussen's backer, billionaire Anders Holch Povlsen whose 'Jack and Jones' logo is on the yellow car now, remains committed.

Magnussen's sponsor agent, Thomas Badura, would not comment on that, but he said there is "nothing to suggest" that the 23-year-old's current commercial arrangements are set to change.

"Both current and potential sponsors are aware that 2016 is the first step," he said.

Still, Renault team boss Frederic Vasseur insists that the 2017 lineup is not yet decided.

"I have the advantage that 70 per cent of the drivers on the grid have driven for my previous team (ART) and I talk to them every single day," he said.

"But I also speak to Jo (Palmer) and Kev (Magnussen) every single day as well," added the Frenchman. "The difference is that they should focus on their jobs, as we are far from the time when we take our decision.

"There definitely will not be a decision before September. Definitely," said Vasseur.

And he admitted that sponsorship may also play a role in the final decision.

"We are a company," said Vasseur. "Right now it's all about performance, but at some point we also speak about sponsors. It may prove important."
